She said she did not know of any reports of anyone getting sick from drinking the water at the park.
Pam Williams, spokeswoman for the state Health Department, said her agency has not had any reports of anyone becoming ill from E. coli from drinking water at Frontier City or eating food there.
Oklahoma City-Oklahoma County Health Department workers were also at the park Friday morning, said H.R. Holman, spokesman. He said the park uses well water that has been tested positive for E. coli. He said park officials have been told not to serve ice or water.
"We are out there working with the park," Holman said.
He said no one has reported being sick form water at the park. He said symptoms of being exposed to E. Coli may not show up for 12 to 18 hours after being exposed. He said the park officials called the city-county health department about 4 p.m. Thursday about the test results.
Pennock could not comment on specifics of the water test results but released the following statement:
"Like many in this area, we utilize well water which is quality-tested monthly by the Department of Environmental Quality. Immediately upon notification of unsatisfactory test results on July 30, all use of public water was terminated and, out of an abundance of caution, the park was closed."
