NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – The City of Norman’s Water Treatment Plan is up and running again thanks to emergency repairs.
The City of Norman issued a news release late Thursday night, stating that the plant is running again after freezing temperatures caused a pipe to burst and damaged water treatment process components.
“Residents are asked to continue to conserve water as pressure is restored over the next 12 hours,” the news release states.
Residents are advised to use water wisely and protect their water lines by doing the following:
- Leave your cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate.
- Consider only dripping indoor faucets that are on exterior walls. If you don’t have indoor exterior faucets, drip internal faucets to keep water flowing.
- Do not try to use open flames or boiling water to thaw pipes.
- Know where your water shutoff is in case of an emergency.
- Please help your neighbors by using water efficiently.
