First, I want to thank those that called with support and confidence in the school's ability to deal with our water problem. WOW! Very humbling to know that even in times of trouble there is support. It doesn’t mean that bad situations do not come up but it helps to know that your community believes that a competent process will be followed to reconcile the issue. Thanks.
We met with DEQ. There has been no finding or reason for the problem at this point. From a visual inspection – about 5 hours worth – there are no apparent problems. What has been determined, because it is standard operating procedure, is that from this point forward we will have a new standards to ensure the problem does not return. Our latest water sample could come back perfect but it would not release us from having to meet new chlorination requirements if we stay with our wells. And, that is OK. If that is what we need to do to prevent a reoccurrence, it sounds like a minor inconvenience. There is much work to do; pulling wells, testing water, DEQ, testing water, City of OKC, testing water, installing equipment, testing water . . . . . and we do not have such a long time to do it.
By the way, I completely support the media’s efforts to inform. For the most part they have been very positive to work with just about every time we have need to do so. I appreciate the job they do and generally the way they approach it. BUT, if I do not know the specific answers concerning Oakdale, chances are they do not either. I do not know the answers yet. We will keep you updated as we progress. And this too shall pass.
