The City of Ada is also known locally as the “City of Pure Spring Water” – because that’s exactly what it is. Ada’s water supply originates from the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer, an underground reservoir of pristine-quality water. The Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer is located in south central Oklahoma (south of Ada) and occupies more than 500 square miles of underground terrain. The water gravity flows approximately 11 miles north into the city’s water treatment plant, where it is tested for alkalinity, hardness, bacteria, and pH levels. A little bit of chlorine and floride are added to ensure safe consumption. The most recent Water Quality Report contains more information. Contact the Oklahoma Water Resources Board for information on statewide water issues.
