Drought conditions have put a South Plains town in a state of emergency concerning their water supply.

The city of Olton may run out of water in 45 days due to the drought of the past two years and wells are only inches away from going dry. The Texas Department of Agriculture gave the City of Olton a $350,000 disaster grant to build temporary wells for water.

The city plans to build a water pipeline from Santa Rosa, New Mexico to be a long term solution for their future water supply.

City of Olton residents are urged to conserve water.
