Many residents in Minor Hill, Tennessee are without water.
The city, which is about 88 miles south of Nashville, currently purchases water from Limestone County in neighboring Alabama.
However, due to a drought in the nearby state, the county has cut off its supply of water to Minor Hill.
"Seems like in the morning we have a little bit of water to use, but after about 9:00 [a.m.], everybody's out," Minor Hill resident Neal Williams told Nashville's News 2.
On Tuesday, bottled water from the American Red Cross and Home Depot was distributed to Minor Hill residents.
Officials said Minor Hill is working with the city of Pulaski to route water to their pumps.
"Now what they're going to do is put some inline pumps in to pump more water from Pulaski," said Mayor Wilburn.
Wilburn said he hopes the water issue is solved by the end of the week, at the latest.
"I'll say that in the future, we'll be looking at other sources of water," he said.
Residents have been asked to conserve water and refrain from burning any items.
As a last resort, the city can draw water from a nearby creek.
Wednesday, officials from the Minor Hill Water Department told Nashville's News 2 that two booster pumps had been installed to pump water from Pulaski.
It could still be a few days before engineers get the pumps running.
Their two water tanks were emptied Wednesday morning.
