A couple of more Water Systems in Northern Arkansas have been added to the list that are current under Boil Orders.
Late Tuesday, customers of the East Newton County Water Association in the Piercetown area were put under a Boil Order after a water line break. This is in addition to the Order that was issued earlier Tuesday for parts of the Deer Water Association.
On Wednesday, customers of the Mount Olive Water Association, which includes parts of Madison County, were placed under a Boil Order after a main break.
The Arkansas Department of Health says water in those systems may be unsafe for human consumption and should boiled for one minute prior to drinking or using in preparing food.
