Boil Order has been issued for the Southern Oklahoma Water Corporation water system, located in Carter County and northern Love County, and all water systems that purchase water from SOWC.
All users of the SOWC water system are encouraged 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, including drinking, use in food preparation, dishwashing and brushing teeth. This order was issued due to the presence of E. coli.
Please note that the boil order is only for the Southern Oklahoma Water Corporation and the water systems that purchase water from SOWC. The water systems under the Boil Order are:
· Southern Oklahoma Water Corporation
· C&W Mobile Home Park
· Ardmore Air Park
· Hidden Lake RV Park
· Cedar Ridge RV Park
· By the Lake RV Park
· Lake Murray State Park
This boil order does not include many areas of Carter County and Love County, including most of the City of Ardmore. If a water customer is not sure which water system supplies their water, the customer should check their water bill.
Southern Oklahoma Water Corporation will notify 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.
