Historic winter storms struck Oklahoma leaving some without water until Oklahoma water industry leaders stepped up to the plate.
As historic winter storms swept across Oklahoma, many communities' water supply was impacted due to frozen pipes leaving some Oklahomans without water while repairs were made. Several Associate Members of the Oklahoma Rural Water Association answered the call for help and donated bottled water to communities in need.
It was a collective effort between FEMA, Oklahoma Emergency Management and ORWA to provide clean drinking water to Oklahomans who need it most, said ORWA Deputy CEO, Jimmy Seago.
“We are extremely thankful for our Associate Members who stepped up and helped us supply Oklahomans with safe drinking water when they needed it most,” said Seago. “In trying times that’s when Oklahoma truly shines because we come together and help our neighbors.”
