The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality has announced that the boil order for Pawhuska, located in Osage County, has been lifted. The water is now safe for human consumption.
The following water system purchases water from Pawhuska, and therefore the boil order is also lifted for this water system:
• Osage County Rural Water District #18
The order to boil water was due to E.coli. State and federal regulations require that customers be notified if, at any time, public drinking water is determined to be unsafe.
