Public schools in Cameron, Okla., are closed Monday (April 7) because of a boil order in one LeFlore County water district, a school official said.

The school district will make a decision Monday whether to cancel classes also on Tuesday, said Jim Caughern, Cameron Public Schools superintendent. The school district has 330 students.

A malfunction at a water treatment plant in LeFlore County Rural Water District 14 led to the boil order, Caughern said. The water district has sent a water sample to Oklahoma City to be tested for safety, he said.

Rather than take a chance that any school children might get sick from unsafe water, Caughern said the decision was make to cancel classes.

    Did they find worms in the water again?

    So nasty. Oklahoma has no excuse for such poor quality water.

    Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri have some of the best water in the nation.

    It shouldn’t be so hard to get it right.

    This is mismanagement pure and simple.
