Boil order lifted in Jones

The State Department of Environmental Quality has lifted the boil order for residents of the city of Jones following a scare over E. coli found in the water.

The DEQ indicated the water is now safe for human consumption and the order to boil water was lifted over the weekend.

State and federal regulations require that customers be notified if, at any time, public drinking water is determined to be unsafe. The DEQ is responsible for regulating more than 1,600 public water supplies in Oklahoma.

All public water supplies are required to regularly submit samples to DEQ for routine testing to make sure the water is safe for human consumption.
