City of Tulsa Water & Refuse Update – 5:50 p.m.

 The City of Tulsa is still trying to increase storage tank levels due to the amount of water being lost throughout the water system and continues to implement operational changes necessary to replenish storage tank levels.

Residents are asked to continue to conserve water until the water situation fully stabilizes. 

Currently, there are 83 active breaks with approximately 700 residences and 97 businesses impacted.

Repairs are being prioritized based on when the waterlines are shut down. The City’s main focus is to repair waterlines and restore service to all affected customers.

To report waterline breaks, customers can call Water Dispatch at (918) 596-9488 or Sewer Dispatch at (918) 586-6999. Additionally, customers can report waterline breaks via email, with no wait times, to

Refuse and Recycling

Due to operation issues at Tulsa’s Covanta waste to energy plant, refuse will be diverted to the Quarry Landfill for the next three days.

Refuse will be collected on normal service days, but residents may see a delay when the pick-up occurs. Leave your refuse at the curb and it will be collected on your service day. All other refuse services such as recycling and bulky waste operations will continue as normal.

 • If you have extra refuse that will not fit in your cart, you can place a reasonable number of sealed bags alongside your cart. You do not need a sticker this week.
• If you have extra recycling, you can place it in a cardboard box alongside your blue cart. Do not put it in plastic trash bags.
