The drought in Central Illinois is keeping water haulers busy. That's because the wells of many rural residents have run dry.
Carl Marion of Athens has been a water hauler for 15 years. He says he's working around the clock to try to keep up with the demand - he starts at 7 a.m. and won't finish until midnight. Often, he will have to re-fill wells weekly.
Marion says he's also making daily trips with water to nearby campgrounds that have run dry, adding that many people are hauling their own water to fill their wells due to the drought.
