Boil order lifted for rural Baxter County water system

By  | 

LAKEVIEW, Ark. It’s safe to drink the water for customers of a rural Baxter County system.

The Arkansas Department of Health has released the boil water notice it issued Tuesday for customers of the Lakeview Midway Public Water Authority. It covered customers in the area from Cedar Hill west to River Road.

The order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system when a water main break caused a complete loss in normal system pressure.

Bacteriological samples taken on Tuesday were found to be safe.
