SEQUOYAH COUNTY (KFSM) —  Hundreds of customers of the Sequoyah County Water Association are without water Tuesday morning (Sept. 12), according to General Superintendent Vance Mooney.

Broken pumping systems are reportedly causing most of the western and middle sections of the county to lose water.

Mooney estimates between 800 and 1,200 residents may be affected by the outage.

Crews have been working to fix the issue since about 3 a.m.

Water service is expected to be restored to all areas by Tuesday afternoon, Mooney said. The Department of Environmental Quality does not intend on issuing a boil order.
