Boil Order Issued - 12/9/17
This is to notify you that on Friday, December 8, 2017, there was a leak discovered on a 12" water main. The crew has worked approx. 11 hours to make the necessary repairs. The water supply to several residences was interrupted for most of this time while the Benton Utilities Water Distribution Personnel made the necessary repairs, and this service interruption requires the water department to issue a precautionary boil ord...er per Arkansas Dept. of Health Regulations, when your water service was restored. The Health Dept. requires this order to be issued because of the possibility of contaminated water entering the distributions system as the result of the line compromise and complete loss of normal system pressure in your area.
The following customers are affected: Customers on Sharon Rd (behind Home Depot area), residents of the Dogwood Subdivision which includes Daffodil, Dogwood, Azalea and other surrounding streets. If your water was off this entire time, you are now under this boil order.
Under the 'Boil Order' Notice, all affected customers are advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption, and water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for one (1) minutes prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water used for making ice.
This notice will be lifted by the Arkansas Department of Health when one set of bacteriological samples indicates that the water is free of bacterial contamination, and an adequate disinfectant level is establised throughout the distribution system.
We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please, call 501-776-5942 for information.
