Required notice regarding drinking water on the OSU-Stillwater campus

Although it poses no risk or emergency to the OSU-Stillwater campus, the Department of Environmental Quality requires the university to send a notice that the OSU-Stillwater water system recently violated a drinking water standard. 

OSU is required to monitor the drinking water for specific contaminates on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether the drinking water is meeting health standards.  

During the fourth quarter of 2014, OSU failed to test or complete all monitoring or testing for TTHM & HAA5 and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of the drinking water at this time. 

The OSU water plant has updated interagency correspondence information and instituted a new sampling schedule procedure. 

Since the violation poses no health risk no further action is required on the part of OSU-Stillwater water consumers. 

TTHM & HAA5 are groups of chemicals that are formed along with other disinfection byproducts when chlorine or other disinfectants used to control microbial contaminants in drinking water react with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter in water.

As the nation aggressively addresses the threat of Ebola, it is important to note that the widespread transmission of the disease and subsequent chances of a large scale outbreak still remain low in Oklahoma.
