Poteau water plant equipment repaired, 'tanks now filling'

According to the Poteau Valley Water Director, the pump they were waiting for arrived but wasn't working properly.

POTEAU, Okla. — According to the Poteau Valley Water Director, residents were being asked to continue to conserve water after a pump was delivered but didn't end up working properly on August 17.

Customers using Poteau Valley Improvement Authority were asked back in July to conserve water "until further notice," due to the Poteau Valley plant running at max capacity.

In an update, the manager of the Poteau Valley Improvement Authority said the new equipment was working and that "our tanks are filling."

There wasn't a direct announcement to withdraw the water conservation order, however.
