Small Tennessee Town Gets Back Running Water

The refreshing feel and sound of running water is back in the tiny town of Orme, Tennessee.

After weeks of work, the water lines are now complete in nearby Bridgeport, Alabama.

Now the Tennessee town of 150 people has running water again.
This summer's drought exhausted the Marion County's only water supply, a natural spring.

"Well now we're allowed to take showers and we don't have to take birdbaths no more, it was really hard on us," said Dustin Phillips, an Orme resident.

During the months without water, gallons were hauled in and residents had three hour restrictions.

After filtration tests at the water tower were complete, the town again had running water.
