Boil Order Issued for Kingfisher Public Water Supply
For Immediate Release: June 22, 2019
Contact: Erin Hatfield, (405) 702-7119
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has advised the Kingfisher Public Water Supply, located in Kingfisher County, 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 E. coli in the drinking water.
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.
