The community of Frontier is having to do some repairs on one of their water wells.

Frontier Mayor, Brady Berg, says, "We have two wells in Frontier that supply water for our community. And one of those wells wasn't pumping, so we went over and checked it out. It was figured out that what all it was is that the motor needs to be replaced. So we have to get our well pulled up and replace the pump and motor at the bottom of it."

Berg says it's a big job to pull the well and replace the motor as it sits at 1,053 feet below the surface.

The Town is running on just one well for the time being but Berg says that does not cause any problems for residents. You can still consume the water and use it as usual for cooking and washing.

The town of Frontier should be back to using both wells within the next few weeks.
