Residents in Rotan are feeling the effects of the drought as their main water source continues to dry up.
As Lake J.B. Thomas water dwindles, people in Rotan have complained of water that's undrinkable and even smells like fish.
They told KTXS News that the odor has made it difficult to do dishes and even take showers.
Water is piped in through Snyder, which has only recently begun pumping in water from Lake O.H. Ivie.
Rodney Denton, the director of public works, said the water quality has improved since the switch, but it will still be a few weeks before the old water from Lake J.B. Thomas will be completely flushed out of the filtration system.
Because of the town's water problems, residents are turning to bottled water, and Rotan's only grocery store is having trouble keeping it in stock.
Store officials say 900 gallons of bottled water is ordered each week and it sells fast.
