Boil order lifted for Tuckerman, North Jackson County
TUCKERMAN Ark. (KAIT) - Two weeks after it was issued, a boil order was lifted for Tuckerman and North Jackson County residents.
Tuckerman Mayor Rick Womack said the Arkansas Department of Health issued the order after a water main break was discovered on Wednesday, Oct. 11.
City workers repaired the problem the following day; however, Womack said that one of the samples the city sent to ADH “failed,” and the order remained in effect.
“We hope to hear back from them [ADH] sometime this week,” Womack said on Monday, Oct. 23.
On Wednesday, the city shared a Facebook post saying the order had been lifted and the water was safe to use.
The boil order affected all Tuckerman Waterworks and North Jackson County Rural Water Association customers.
