Boil Order Issued for Customers of Oak Tree Water

For Immediate Release: June 6, 2017

Contact: Erin Hatfield, (405) 702-7119

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has advised Oak Tree Water, located in Delaware County, to inform its customers and users of its drinking water to use water that has been brought to a full, rolling boil for at least one minute, bottled water, or water from another acceptable source for consumption, use in food preparation, dishwashing and brushing teeth. This order was issued due to E. coli in the drinking water.

Residents will be notified when the water is considered safe for human consumption. Federal law requires that consumers be notified when a public water supply exceeds certain maximum contaminant levels and might be harmful to the health of consumers.
