Boil order in effect for Pocahontas High School campus

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - A boil order is in effect until later this week at the Pocahontas High School Campus.

According to Bill Daniel with Pocahontas Water Works, a water main broke on school property Monday, causing them to lose water pressure.

Daniel told Region 8 News they would be pulling water samples Monday and Tuesday morning to send to Paragould to have them tested.

Daniel hopes to receive word on those water samples either Wednesday or Thursday of this week so the boil order may be lifted.

The high school campus is the only part of the Pocahontas School District under the boil order.
