UPDATE: The Boil Order in the Zuber, Samples Rd area has been LIFTED.
The Arkansas Department of Health has confirmed the Boil Water Notice issued by SALEM WATER USERS LLC on October 3, 2022. This notice is for approximately 25 customers on Samples Rd., from Zuber Rd. and two houses past Racetrack Rd.
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 a loss in normal system pressure and a water line break.
Under the ‘Boil Water’ 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) minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water used for making ice.
This Notice will be lifted by the Department of Health when 1 set of 1 bacteriological samples indicate that the water is free of bacterial contamination and an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the distribution system.
Watch MySaline for updates when the order has been lifted.
