EPA takes steps to ensure safe drinking water

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has taken another step to ensure that Oklahomans will continue to have safe drinking water throughout the state.

The agency has awarded the Oklahoma Corporation Commission nearly $132,000 to continue efforts to protect groundwater. The money will be used to issue permits for injection wells and for shutting down wells that are polluted. It will also be utilized to perform on-site field investigations and maintenance for compliance assurance on wells.

The federal agency says the grant creates a cooperative effort between state and tribal governments to ensure safe drinking water is accessible to all citizens.
