BOKCHITO, OKLAHOMA -- Bokchito residents are asked to conserve water after one of the town's two water wells went out.

Town treasurer Melissa Scott says the more than 50 year old well broke, leaving just one other well as back up.

Tonight, town leaders made a proclamation for a Stage 5 drought, meaning residents cannot water their lawns, vehicles or fill their pools.

Scott says the town is working on building a new well, but it won't be finished for months.
