The Wilburton Public Works Authority (PWA) is comprised of employees who provide services in supplying water to the Wilburton citizens to include managing individual accounts, treatment and delivery, and maintenance of the water pipe system. The Authority is composed of Water Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, Water Maintenance, and  Administration.   PWA Secretary is Ms. DeDe Richardson.


We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants.  Our water system recently violated drinking water standards.  Although this was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

The City of Wilburton Has Levels of Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) Above Drinking Standards.  Testing results we received for January 2016 through December 2016, and July 2016 through June 2017 show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contamination level (MCL) for total TTHMs.  The standard of MCL for total TTHMs is 0.080 mg/L.   It is determined by averaging all the samples collected at each sampling location for the past 12 months.  The level of total TTHMs averaged at our system's location was 0.081 mg/L. 

Corrective Action.  What happened?  What is being done? When will the violation be resolved?  During 2016-2017, we had excessive amounts of iron and manganese in the system.   We fed higher amounts C/2 to combat this. We have cut back on C/2 and flushed lines to get back in compliance.
