The Arkansas Department of Health confirmed the Boil Water notice issued by Ray Bergan for customers located at the following locations:
South Kratz Rd.
The small end of Ridge Rd.
1130 Hwy 222 to Pleasant Hill Loop
This order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of a loss in normal system pressure.
Under the Boil Water order, all affected customers must be advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption, and water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for (1) minute prior to use. all ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water used for making ice.
This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected and an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the distribution system, and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
The boil water order was due to loss of water pressure to the Brown Springs Tank.
