City narrows down cause of water in east Lawton neighborhood

LAWTON, Okla._The City of Lawton believes they’ve narrowed down the cause for the water plaguing East Lake residents.

Assistant City Manager Jim Russell says the city's initial tests indicate that the water is not leaking from a city pipe, but appears to be either groundwater or surface runoff. He said the conclusion is based on the chemical analysis of the water, which among other things, indicated only a trace level of chlorine.

Russell says he has ordered additional tests on the individual lines to ensure there is not a leak and says he will have a third-party complete the tests to ensure the city's findings are correct. 

Russell says those tests are expected to get underway this week.
