For Immediate Release:  February 3, 2020

Contact:  Erin Hatfield, (405) 702-7119

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has advised the Beaver Co. RWD #1 (Turpin) water system, located in Beaver 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.

Please note that the boil order is only for the Beaver Co. RWD #1 water system, which serves Turpin. The boil order does not include many areas of Beaver County. If a water customer is unsure which water system supplies their water, the customer should check their water bill.

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.
