The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has advised Webbs, a non- community public water supply, located in Ponca City, to inform 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 the presence of E. coli. This boil order is for Webbs Restaurant and Bar only.

Users 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.
