Consumer Water Advisory


The Arkansas Department of Health has issued a boil water notice for Batesville Water Utility customers in the Westside, Denny Hill and Ruddell Hill areas as well as Bethesda and Cushman.

This order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of a partial or complete pressure loss.

The boil order was due to a fire hydrant repair/break in the main line on Central Avenue after a pipe connection froze and broke.

Under the boil water order, all affected customers must be advised that the water may be unsafe for human consumption, and water used for drinking or food preparation must be boiled briskly for one minute prior to use. All ice cubes should be discarded and only boiled water should be used for making ice.
