BARTLETT, Texas (AP) - The mayor of a small Central Texas town says the city will be without water for up to three days after two water pumps failed.

The Temple Daily Telegram (https://bit.ly/1MpODYZ ) reports that Bartlett Mayor Norris Ivy made the announcement Wednesday. Meanwhile, Bell County Commissioners Court Judge Jon Burrows declared the town of 2,000 people located about 50 miles northeast of Austin to be in a local state of emergency.

Both the main pump for the ground storage tank and the city’s backup water well failed.

The city was making available bottled water and non-potable water available.
