Boil water order issued for Cherry Valley

CHERRY VALLEY, AR (KAIT) – A boil water order has been issued for Cherry Valley.

Mayor Mike Wood says the main water line ruptured earlier today.

Crews have been working since 3:30 to fix it.  He says water has been restored to the west side of town.

At 8 o'clock tomorrow morning they plan to shut down the water supply and try to install a permanent fix.  It should take four hours to make the repairs.

Wood encourages residents to boil drinking water until further notice.
