City Manager, Brad Scott says the Water Plant had issues with its chlorinator, but they fixed that Monday. He says due to the high temperatures, the PH balance is off at the lake and the odor in the water is coming from an algae bloom, but he stresses it is safe to drink. However, besides the smell caused by algae, some residents say they haven't had clear water in a long time.
The Waurika City Manager says the only thing they can do to fix the problem right now is keep flushing out the water lines and maintain the chlorine levels. Scott says they will continue to post updates to the City's facebook page for residents to check.
