JENKS, Okla. - The city of Jenks is asking its residents to boil all water before drinking after city officials were alerted to a positive E. coli test.
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality issued a boil order around 6 p.m. Friday following the discovery.
Shortly after the announcement, the Tulsa Health Department ordered the shutdown of all open-food Jenks restaurants until the boil order is lifted. Retail food establishments that sell packaged food may continue to do so, but any fountain and drink service must comply with the closing order.

The positive test was the lone sample showing signs of the bacteria among 18 total taken. City officials expect further test results to be available mid-day Saturday.

In the interim, officials recommend finding an alternate water source until the advisory is lifted. Water used in food preparation, dishwashing and teeth brushing should be brought to a full, rolling boil for at least one minute.
