A work crew from Associated Drilling Co. in Austin removes pipes from a broken water well in Florence on Tuesday. The motor on the well broke down on Saturday, prompting officials to move the city’s water shortage rating to Stage 5, the most severe. The well could be back up and pumping sometime today.
