Parts of Fort Peck Reservation without water since May 13

Parts of the Fort Peck Reservation in Montana have been without drinking and bath water for more than three weeks.

A pipeline that oil companies were ordered to build has been out of service since May 13. About 23 homes are affected.

Meanwhile, other parts of the reservation are being flooded due to a massive water release along the Missouri River. About 36 homes could be affected.
