MAUMELLE, AR - Approximately 90 Central Arkansas Water (CAW) customers in Maumelle along Lily Drive and Hibiscus Drive northwest of Waterside Drive as well as Iris Cove, Cattail Cove,Azalea Cove, and Hibiscus Cove are under a precautionary boil order until further notice. The issuance of the precautionary measure followed a break and loss of pressure on an 8-inch-diameter water line that serves the area. The break occurred at approximately 8 p.m. yesterday evening. CAW crews isolated the break by approximately 11:00 p.m. last night. CAW crews completed the repair on the water line by approximately 7:45 a.m. this morning.
While under the precautionary order, affected customers should:
bring water from the household tap to a brisk boil for at least one (1) minute before using it for drinking, beverage or food preparation, or dishwashing discard ice cubes from automatic icemakers
The boil water order affects all customers within the following area:
Along Lily Drive and Hibiscus Drive northwest of Waterside Drive Iris Cove Cattail Cove Azalea Cove Hibiscus Cove
The water utility is notifying customers about the order with door hanger notices as well as with the posting of 3 large signs at major entrances to the affected area.
The spontaneous break occurred on an 8-inch water line at 133 Hibiscus Drive. The Arkansas Department of Health requires the issuance of a precautionary boil order when there is a loss of pressure or service due to a water-line break. The Health Department allows the lifting of the order when water quality samples reveal that water through the main is safe for consumption. The order is a precautionary measure in the event bacteriological contamination of the water line occurred during the damage and subsequent loss of pressure.
Once the water line is back in service, CAW personnel will collect water quality samples. The utility anticipates having the results of the tests and lifting the order on Saturday evening.
Customers with questions about the precautionary boil water order may contact the CAW Distribution Dispatch Center day or night at (501) 377.1239.
