UPDATE NOV 1, 2018:
The Arkansas Department of Health has lifted the ‘Boil Water’ Notice confirmed on October 30th at 8:20 a.m. for the S. Shoreline Blvd in Hurricane Lake Estates. 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 complete loss in normal system pressure.
Bacteriological samples taken on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 were found to be free of bacterial contamination and a satisfactory disinfectant level has been established throughout the distribution system. The water is therefore considered ‘Safe’ for human consumption and the ‘Boil Water’ notice is hereby lifted.

From Benton Utilities…
Water Main Update – Hurricane Lake area update. Benton Utilities Water Distribution crew is onsite where the main is broken, they have isolated those effected to the area of S. Shoreline Blvd. and approx. 50 customers will remain without water until repairs are completed. The locators for the other utilities in the area have just arrived and are marking their lines. Our crew expects to be able to start digging at approx. 9 p.m. and will work through the night to complete the necessary repairs. If all goes as planned, repairs should be completed by 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. On behalf of the crew, I appreciate your patience and understanding as they work to make this repair.
According to Benton Utilities, their Water Distribution Crew has been notified of a 12-inch water main that has broken in the Hurricane Lakes Subdivision near the area of Worth Ave and Shoreline at a creek crossing.
When the crew arrives in the area, they are going to attempt to isolate the issue and get water restored to as many customers as possible. Benton Utilities does not currently have an estimated time of repair. Watch their Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/benton.utilities/.
