BUCKNER, Mo. - Mayor Dan Hickson says he learned about 5:00 this morning that Buckner had a major water leak.
Hickson says the town of just over 3,000 residents suffered some type of major water leak, but they don't yet know what happened.
Sibley, a town of more than 300 residents a few miles north, also receives its water from Buckner.
Mayor Hickson says there is some water in the tower, but pressure is very low.
Water is supplied by Water District # 16 in Buckner.
Public Works officials are working to determine what happened.
