Things finally returned to normal in Broken Arrow on Thursday.
Shortly after 9 on Thursday morning, the water emergency was rescinded, along with the boil advisory, meaning it was again safe to drink and use the water in Broken Arrow.
The water fountain on Mazine Agimudie’s front porch brings her peace and tranquility. She is from the Caribbean and is used to being surrounded by beautiful things.
Not being able to use water for the past few days not only strained her household , but also her yard.
“If they don’t get that water, then it’s a lot of investment and I put out a lot of money in plants and it kills me to see any plant die,” she said.
She said she had no idea the water emergency was over and when she got up Thursday morning she and her husband had a sinking feeling.
“My husband said there goes our shower and I said we are going to have to boil water again,” she said.
She was ecstatic to learn it was safe to start drinking and using her water supply.
“Thank you very much. If you tell me I can do that then the cops won’t pull up by my house,” she said.
Water customers returned to normal water use and no longer have to boil their water before drinking or using it.
Crews tested the water at 40 different sites and after the samples were sent to the lab it was determined that the water is safe.
“I’m really grateful that we live in a city where they keep us updated because Broken Arrow is really good about that. I mean they call you the moment that something is going on,” she said.
FOX23 learned the quality of water delivered to the people in BA during the water emergency was compliant and safe to use and drink and did not pose any type of risk.
And the best part of all, Agimudie’s flowers and lawn can start drinking the water they need to stay alive and beautiful.
“I’m used to the beauty and so I want to keep it that way,” she said.
