This could destroy some struggling businesses in Broken Arrow.

TULSA, OK – [June 12, 2013] – Due to a substantial break in a main water line into Broken Arrow from
Pryor, the City Manager has declared a water emergency for all resident and business customers and
has issued a precautionary boil order which includes all food establishments that utilize City of Broken
Arrow Municipal Water supply.

Due to the volume of water needed to safely operate a restaurant, all food establishments that serve
open food must cease operations immediately until such time that the boil order has been lifted.

I blame terrorism, or Chloramine, (El Nino, Ninjas...)

Their water infrastructure does seem a bit fragile, considering the size of the municipality.
Maybe this should be a higher planning priority than starting a bunch of bars on the main drag.

Other BA locals on here might be able to chime in, but my brother who does live in BA said that the city is working on a new pipeline to Spavinaw.  Now, if that's the case, wouldn't BA essentially be back to where they were 20 years ago, and buying water from the City of Tulsa again (since the City owns Spavinaw Lake and all)?

I live up East 71st and other than the toilets filling up a little slower. I haven't seen any differance in the water color or smell.
What are we avoiding that is in the water? I would rather not have to keep giving my pets Dasani.

Nothing serious, just a few dead bodies in the lines.

It's off topic, but here's what I've learned.

City manager Rodney Ray was arrested for passing a bad check for about $3000. This apparently happened nearly 3 years ago. The employees at the business identified him as having written the check. He claims the check was among those that were stolen. He filed a report to that effect about a year (?) after the fact. The police charged him with filing a false report.

Councilor Kelly was stopped on suspicion of DUI. He failed a field sobriety test and an officer placed him under arrest.  Immediately thereafter, another officer calls the first one aside and tells him to turn off his video recorder. Subsequently, Kelly was driven or escorted home. He never identified himself as a councilor, so the assumption is someone in police supervision realized who he was and made the call.  After watching the video, I have to say that it's doubtful I could pass a field sobriety test given my physical condition.

When water that should be moving stops, it becomes stagnant and the disinfection peters out.

That's evidence tampering, which at the very least raises credibility flags.
If it were court-ordered monitoring, that could also possibly be considered contempt.

Judging from their tax on served drinks/beer, they need the bars to pay for the water improvements.

Cost us thousands in sales on Wednesday. The city should have to reimburse us. Absolutely ridiculous. They called us at 10AM and shut us down. Then yesterday they would give us no information until the World tweeted we could open at 10:30AM! We pulled it off but ran out of bread once for a couple of minutes. Just an absolutely ridiculous situation.

Better than costing you much more in sick customer lawsuits.  Count the blessings and move on....

Of course, you could put in a large reservoir system so you could be more self-contained...have your own water backup system for this type event.  But since this is the first one like this ever - widespread versus localized to neighborhood - it probably wouldn't be cost effective.

I drank a bunch of BA water over the weekend and some from RWD 4.  Both were fine.  Dolfan, cloudy is suspended air particles that will move out after a while - probably getting the results of the big chlorine shot they put into it.

A back up water system could become a bacteria problem as well.
