OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY: Boil Order Lifted for the Sardis Lake Water Authority

Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality issued the following announcement on May 24.

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has announced that the boil order for the Sardis Lake Water Authority, located in Pushmataha County, has been lifted. The water is now safe for human consumption.

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

The following water systems purchase water from the Sardis Lake Water Authority, and have also had the boil order lifted:

• Clayton PWA

• Pushmataha Co. RWD #1

• Pushmataha Co. RWD #5 (Nashoba)

• Latimer Co. RWD #2

Two systems that purchase water from the Sardis Lake Water Authority are still under the boil order. Those systems are:

• Sardis Lake Corps of Engineers facilities at Potatoe Hills

• Sardis Lake Corps of Engineers facilities at Sardis Cove

DEQ is responsible for regulating more than 1,600 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.
