The Broken Arrow water emergency is putting a strain on area businesses.

Restaurants have been forced to close because of the boil order. Managers told FOX23 they are taking a huge financial hit.

But restaurants in Tulsa are seeing a huge increase in business due to the water emergency.

Broken Arrow neighbors drove to Tulsa for food. The water emergency forced Broken Arrow restaurants to close

"I had to write a sign to let them know that we can't be open until they investigate further,” said Edwin Molina, a manager at a Taco Mayo.

“There is nothing we can do about it,” he said.

Molina is worried about the financial loss, “I don't know but it's going to be a lot."

He’s also worried about his employees, “we will have them clock out and I will probably stick around and call everyone on the next shift that they won't be coming in today."

Before restaurants are allowed to re-open the health department said they must flush their water system, throw out previous supplies and wash and rinse and sanitize all equipment that comes in contact with food.
