LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Lawrence County residents who were asked to conserve water earlier this week can now use the water they need. Authorities have pulled their request for customers to conserve water.

According to the NEA Public Water Authority, customers in Walnut Ridge, Hoxie, Portia, and Sedgwick were requested to limit the amount of water they used for washing dishes. The Public Water Authority also encouraged customers to hold off on laundry.

The order was in effect until the river level went down, after a substantial amount of rain fell in Lawrence County all day Sunday into Monday morning.
