KELO-TV reports that residents in Salem have been without water since Monday. Contractors are expected to fix two broken water wells.

In the meantime, residents are being asked to conserve water. The city still has one working well, but officials say it isn't enough to sustain normal use.

This is the second year in a row that residents in Salem have had to conserve water because of a shortage.
