The city of Beaver, Okla., has issued a warning against consuming water from the city water distribution system for an indefinite time.
In a Saturday morning press release, the Beaver Public Works Authority issued a bulletin entitled “Voluntary, Precautionary Boil Advisory.”
“Due to a water main line repair which resulted in a pressure drop in the water system and the potential for contamination as a result of this situation, the drinking water supplied by the Beaver Public Works Authority may be unsafe for consumption,” the release noted.
“As a precaution, it is advised that the consumers of this water system bring the water to a full, rolling boil for at least one minute before consumption, or in food preparation, dish washing, tooth brushing, wound care and bathing infants who may ingest bath water,” the release added.
The BPWA also noted “the advisory will remain in effect until further notice.”
Questions concerning this advisory can be addressed to Terry Castor at 580-625-3331 or 580-527-1451.
