Fayetteville Water Quality Test Affirms Water Safe to Drink
City Asks Customers to Continue Conservation Measure through Sunday

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Water from the repaired transmission line from the Beaver Water District is safe for consumption, the Arkansas Department of Health test confirmed this afternoon. City of Fayetteville is asking residents and businesses to continue the temporary conservation efforts through Sunday in order to allow the reserve tanks to fill back up to operating capacity. The City and University of Arkansas and other major customers have been in conservation mode since yesterday’s announcement and the city is asking residents to continue to join these efforts. Please restrict water usage to drinking, cooking, and personal hygiene. Automatic irrigation and sprinkler systems should be temporarily shut off. Please avoid any unnecessary water usage (such as washing vehicles, pressure washing, etc.)

The City will release updated information through media releases and its website, Facebook, and Twitter. The City of Fayetteville appreciates your cooperation.
