Yes the water is bad and it is over priced. Water in Talihina is higher than anyother city around check the prices. It is the towns falt get out and go to City Counsel meeting, vote them out of office or you will be paying even higher prices.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Sounds like you need to go to a council meeting and learn something! It is not the highest of any city. Until recently it was the lowest in the state of Oklahoma. Call the city engineers. They can tell you what is being required by DEQ. The Oklahoma Rural Water Board is the one requiring the water rates to be raised. Work should begin on the updated water plant in the next year. I agree that it is hard to pay that price for water when most of the time you can't drink it! I also ruined a load of whites because of the water. I'm not saying it's right I'm saying that as a resident of Talihina I have been to meetings and have spoken to the engineers and they explained about the water and the rates. I have learned alot since moving here. Like, everyone wants to gripe about the town and the council but no one wants to run for election. Most of the time they don't even have an opponent to run against because, like I said, people just want to bitch without knowing the facts or getting involved. Every council meeting I have been to, I have been the only one there. You really can voice your concern during the public forum. Or, you can contact a council member and have something put on the agenda for discussion. Until people get involved for the better of the town not much is going to change. You can sit around and bad mouth everything, but that is not going to improve the town in a positive way. Just saying!!!

Does just saying mean you can do the same thing you are criticizing?

I don't know how you don't use it for everyday needs. I still have to flush my toilet, take a shower, wash dishes, wash clothes, etc. If you are buying water to do all of these chores you can afford the water bill better than I can. I don't drink it but I use it throughout the day.

I'm really sorry that you are having those kinds of problems. I live in town and don't have those issues on an everyday basis. When they flush fire hydrants or have a major water leak the water is disgusting. I have ruined a load of whites during one of those times so I understand your frustration. It is my understanding that the city will be starting construction on their new water plant before the year's end. I can't wait to not have to buy water to drink.

The final loan papers have been signed and construction will start very soon on the water plant construction. I understand there were a couple breaks last week and a pump that went down at the water plant. These issues should have been fixed Friday. Please know the city council and city staff are working very hard to correct the problem.
