A Mandatory Water Rationing Order issued for residents in Broken Arrow has been lifted.
Water customers were advised to restrict use of water to drinking and cooking purposes only.
Electrical issues with the high-service pump at the water treatment facility had caused the pump to quit working. The city and PSO are still investigating what led to that electrical failure.
With only three smaller pumps able to provide water to customers, the city's capacity to pump water into the city was limited.
According to a release issued by the city, "Power has been restored to the high service pumps at the water treatment facility. Water customers can now use water but are cautioned to do so sparingly for the next few hours while the towers continue to recovery to normal water levels."
