Water safe to drink now at 2 Oklahoma sites

Much of Grimes County lifts boil notice | Navasota Examiner

 

Boil orders issued by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality for two water supplies in the state were lifted on Monday.

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has announced that the boil order for the Osage Co. RWD #21 water system, located in Osage County has been lifted. The water is now safe for human consumption.

The order to boil water was issued due to a lack of required filtration and elevated turbidity. State and federal regulations require that customers be notified if, at any time, public drinking water is determined to be unsafe.

The DEQ also announced that the boil order for the Sunnyside Water Association water system, located in Comanche County has been lifted. The water is now safe for human consumption

The order to boil water was issued due to the presence of E. coli. State and federal regulations require that customers be notified if, at any time, public drinking water is determined to be unsafe.

DEQ is responsible for regulating more than 1,300 public water supplies in the State of Oklahoma. All public water supplies are required to regularly submit samples to DEQ for routine testing to ensure that water is safe for human consumption.
