TWU Issues Boil Water Notice For Arkansas-Side Community
The September 26, 2022 “Precautionary Boil Water Notice” is hereby rescinded following the repair of a water main break, caused by aging infrastructure, which impacted the residents located in Mandeville, Arkansas.
An adequate disinfectant level has been established throughout the distribution system and the satisfactory completion of the bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
Texarkana Water Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water notice for residences in and around Mandeville, Arkansas.
The order has been issued as a precautionary measure due to the possibility that contaminated water could enter the distribution system because of a loss in normal system pressure. The boil water order has been issued due to a water main break caused on Mandeville Road.
During a ‘Boil Water’ order, affected area customers must be advised that their tap water may be unsafe for human consumption. Water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for one minute prior to use. Ice cubes should be discarded, and only boiled water used for making ice.
Remember, this is a “precautionary boil water notice,” the notice will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected, and an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the distribution system and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
