Cash Waterworks under precautionary boil water notice

CASH, AR (KAIT) – The Arkansas Department of Health has issued a precautionary boil water notice for the Cash Waterworks System.

According to the ADH, a car hit a fire hydrant which caused pressure loss throughout the system.

The ADH reports the precautionary measure has been issued because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of the loss in system pressure.

All customers should boil their water briskly for 1 minute prior to use. Also all ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water used for making ice.

Region 8 News will continue to track this story and let you know when the order has been lifted as soon as we receive the update.
