The City of Broken Arrow is lifting its request for water customers to conserve water.
Construction at the city’s new water treatment plant decreased the city’s ability to pump water to the storage tanks Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. This is now complete.
Customers may now resume normal water usage.
“We are very pleased with the work that was completed overnight at our new water treatment facility,” said Stephanie Higgins, director of communications for the city of Broken Arrow. “The contractors, as well as city crews, worked throughout the night to assure there was a not a disruption of service to our customers. They should be commended for their efforts.”
The $57 million membrane treatment facility will replace the existing the city's current plant constructed in 1966 and is scheduled for completion in July 2014.
The completed facility will be able to process up to 20 million gallons a day during the winter and up to 28 million gallons in the summer.
