LITTLE AXE, Okla. – The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has issued a boil order for the Little Axe School, located in Cleveland County.
This boil order applies only to Little Axe School and DOES NOT impact any other public water supplies.
This order was issued due to E.coli in the drinking water.
Users will be notified when the water is considered safe for human consumption.
Jay Thomas, superintendent of Little Axe schools, says meals prepared for daycare children Monday will be prepared with bottled water.
“We have been in close contact with the Health Department to ensure the safety of our staff and children attending the daycare,” said Thomas.
All staff and children will have access to bottled water until the boil order is lifted.
