HOMINY, Okla. (AP) – Water has been restored at an Oklahoma prison that had to bring in bottled water for inmates to use after a line break nearly a week ago. The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says water was fully restored late Friday at the Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy. A pipe at the prison broke on June 25, leading the agency to import water for its 1,200 inmates to drink and giving them buckets of water to fill their toilets.
