LONE GROVE, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has lifted drinking water restrictions for all of Lone Grove. Testing for herbicides and bacteria has been completed for the entire city and water use restrictions have been removed.
Residents south of Myall Road should continue to conserve water use because the area is served by a small line until the Brock Road water line can be returned to service. If residents notice a drop in water pressure, they should resume boiling water for drinking, cooking or washing dishes.
Nine houses east of or on Brock Road are still without water. DEQ and Lone Grove officials are working to restore water service to these homes and assure that there is no herbicide contamination in service lines or home plumbing. This process will take several days to complete.
