Boil order lifted in Pushmataha County

State regulators have lifted the boil order they had issued last week for residents who use water from Sardis Lake in southeast Oklahoma.

The Department of Environmental Quality said the water from the lake in Pushmataha County is now safe for human consumption.

The original boil order was issued because of “high turbidity in the water and loss of pressure following a line break” according to a DEQ announcement.

The lifting of the order also applies to several water systems that purchase water from the Sardis Lake Water Authority including Clayton PWA, Pushmataha Co. RWD #1, Pushmataha Co. RWD #5 (Nashoba) and the Sardis Lake Corps of Engineers facilities at Potatoe Hills and Sardis Cove.
