Boil order lifted for Rock A Way Tavern

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has lifted the boil order for the Rock A Way Tavern after the tavern’s water system failed a test due to E.coli in the drinking water.

On late Wednesday afternoon, DEQ, who issued the boil alert on June 14, says the water is now safe for human consumption.

This boil order applied only to Rock A Way Tavern (7802 S. Sooner Road) and did not impact any other public water supplies.

The tavern’s water system was operated on a private well.

“(We) have made moves to join Guthrie district 1’s rural water and disconnect the well from the building all together,” Erik McCutchen said in a comment on Guthrie News Page’s Facebook page.

McCutchen said the tavern has always handed out free bottled water, and brings in ice from off site.

“There was no chance of consuming water,” McCutchen said in his comment.

DEQ is responsible for regulating more than 1,300 public water supplies in the State of Oklahoma. All public water supplies are required to regularly submit samples to DEQ for routine testing to ensure that water is safe for human consumption.
