Precautionary Boil Water Notice
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for residents of Greenland, West Fork and the Wallin Mountain Pressure Plane of the Mt. Olive Water District.
A water main break has occurred at Drake Field in Fayetteville, resulting in a loss of water pressure for more than four hours.
As a precaution, all affected customers are advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption. Water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes should be boiled briskly for one (1) minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded, and only boiled water be used for making ice. As an alternative, bottled water may be used.
“This precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected, an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the distribution system and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.”
Residents affected by this boil water notice will be contacted once the notice is lifted.
Please contact City of Fayetteville Water and Sewer at (479) 575-8386 with any questions.
