About two weeks ago, Hickman county’s water was contaminated, but the problem has only gotten worse.
Jacquelyn McPeek lives in an independent living facility, and said trying to do normal every day activities has been extremely difficult without water.
"You cant wash your hands, you have to get a bottle of water to wash your hands you can’t use the facilities without water to get rid of your waste.
You can’t take any showers," said McPeek.
Anyone in need of water, can get some from crews who will continue handing out water until the problem is fixed.
"We’re looking forward to try to get this under control soon as we possibly can," said Hudgins.
