Statement from the City of El Reno
We are gaining ground but continue to conserve water as it comes back on. We are under a volunteer boil advisory from the DEQ. All the water that leaves the plant has been fully treated and tested; however, we are following the recommendation of DEQ and the lead of Oklahoma City and issuing a voluntary boil advisory due to the low pressure we have been experiencing. Water Superintendent Chris Smith and his crew have been working around the clock to bleed air out of the lines and respond to emergency cutoffs as the water pressure has been building. We don’t have a timeline for when the the system pressure is back completely, but we are gaining ground. Between the hours of 12 and 5pm today help us conserve water so we can continue making progress. During the warm hours, dripping is not as necessary as the cold nighttime hours. Watch the video at the City of El Reno Facebook - if you have any questions call 659-2596.
