Diesel Leak at Water Well in Ada

Diesel Leak at Water Well in AdaThe City of Ada discovered a diesel leak at a holding tank at one of its three water wells this week, the exact date of the leak is unknown. It’s estimated that 2,000 gallons leaked.

Ada contacted the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) immediately and is working to remediate the well site area.

Citizens in Ada are told to not be concerned as the leak does not affect the quality of Ada’s drinking water. The current concern is that it come affect quantity as demand increases this summer. The majority of Ada’s water comes from Byrd’s Mill Spring with the affected well supplementing during high demand.


The well is not currently in use and will remain out of service until the issue can be resolved.

Rationing could be required when demand rises but current rainfall will likely help the reduce the reliance on the affected well.
