Water services should be returning to Lake Norrell customers, with the finish of installation of a new line. The Arkansas Department of Health has confirmed a Boil Water Notice for the Lake Norrell community on January 3, 2022.
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.
What to do during a Boil Water Notice:
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 3 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 the update on when the Boil Water Notice will be lifted.
