Boil order is over for Lawton's east side

LAWTON_Good news for folks on Lawton's east side. Residents no longer need to boil their water. City officials gave the go ahead yesterday.

As you know, a voluntary boil order was put into place after a major water main broke under East Cache Creek nearly three weeks ago. Heavy rain and flooding hampered city crews as they worked to make temporary repairs.

But, a week ago today, that work was completed. Next Lawton crews will install a permanent water main under the creek.

Count on 7 News to keep you updated on progress with that project.

Again.... The water boiling order for the east side of Lawton is over.
