OKLAHOMA CITY – The power has been restored at the Draper Water Treatment Plant Tuesday.

OKC officials said residents and businesses will soon see the water pressure return to normal.

The treatment facility lost power in Monday’s storm.

The early morning rain and lightening delayed the power restoration process.

Crews are monitoring the water quality as they bring the water system back online and flush the pipelines.

Officials at the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality said they have no reason to believe the water in the pipeline is unsafe to drink.

However, those who completely lost water service or whose homes sustained structural damage may choose to voluntarily boil water before consumption, as a precautionary measure.
