Newkirk under precautionary boil advisory

Ponca City Now - August 18, 2014 11:21 am

One of the city of Newkirk’s water wells tested positive for E. Coli on Friday. City Manager, Jason Wells said due to this a boil advisory has been issued by the Department of Environmental Quality.

"I guess the most important thing to say is that none was in the distribution system," Wells said.

The boil advisory is just precautionary. However, Orr said they don’t know when that advisory will be lifted. DEQ is currently working on the situation.
