Drinking water not safe for some Logan County residents

Bookmark and Share

Residents in the Cedar Valley area say they get the alerts often but a water warning is in effect for them as well as the town of Cashion after sample tests show an influx of nitrate contamination.

Guthrie News PageAccording to the water system, recent water sample from the Logan County Rural Water No. 2 show nitrate levels at 10.5 mg/1. The standard or maximum containment level (MCL) for nitrate is listed at 10 mg/1.

Officials say if you live in these areas, do not give the water to infants under six months old or use it to make infant formula. Infants below the age of six months who consume water contaminated with nitrate could become seriously ill and if not treated, could die. Adults and children older than six months old can drink the tap water. However, if you are pregnant or have specific health concerns, you should consult your doctor.

The water system serves areas of southwest Logan County and southeast Kingfisher County, including the town of Cashion and Cedar Valley Golf Course.
