Residents in One Region 8 Community Living with Dirty Drinking Water

NOVEMBER 10, 2004 - Posted at 5:36 p.m. CST

 

BALD KNOB, AR - Several residents north of Bald Knob say their water is so dirty that their clothes come out of the wash browner than when they went in.  They also complain that black gook sits at the bottom of glasses filled from their faucets and gritty film remains on the sides of bathtubs.

But the state Health Department says the water does not pose a health hazard, and water officials say the problem should be corrected when a pipeline is completed to carry water from Searcy to the city of Bald Knob and the Bald Knob North Water District.
