LONE GROVE, Okla. -- Two weeks after the water service in Lone Grove was shut down when weed killer contaminated the system, nine homes remain without water.

Meanwhile, state agencies are mulling charges against the company responsible for the contamination.

About 1,300 customers in the town have been having major water problems since January 23 when a business owner inadvertently siphoned a concentrated weed killer into the city's water supply while he was trying to dilute the concentrate inside a spray rig.

A water main break created a backflow in the water lines, causing the chemicals to be sucked into the water system.

    So what are the "facts" since you are in the know? Please tell us something that kxii hasn't already... I don't recall blaming her or the employes(sic)for causing the problem. How long does it take to drain and flush the system? Calm down before you have a stroke! P.S. Learn to spell before you "pop off". :)

    Do some of the people who write these comments know what they are talking about, maybe if they would watch 12 news more they would know the city manager is doing the best out of a bad situation that her or any of her employes didn't cause in the first place. Get your facts straight before you pop off things you know nothing about.......The DEQ has had control of the situation since the begining, along with the water testing and the release of it!!!!!!!!
