Officials in Owsley County are hoping water service will soon be restored to most residents as freezing temperatures have hampered the city's intake pumps.
Postings on the city of Booneville's Facebook page indicate residents began reporting water outages on Wednesday. Customers with running water in the county are being asked to conserve their usage for essential tasks, like cooking.
Another Facebook posting from Thursday said officials are hoping most residents would have their water service restored by Friday morning.
Officials have also issued a boil water advisory for residents who get their water turned back on.
