CORNING, AR (KAIT) -

Corning residents no longer need to boil their water to drink it.

Mayor Rob Young told Region 8 News Tuesday afternoon the boil water order has been lifted.

The order was issued last Thursday after Young said a sub-contractor drilled a hole into a water line, causing dirt and debris to invade the water supply.

City crews worked until 9 p.m. Thursday to repair the water line. But Young said that due to certain protocols, the boil order had to be issued.
