CEDARVILLE, Ark. (KFSM) — The department of health has lifted the boil order for Cedarville today (Oct. 18). This boil order was issued on October 11, 2019 due to a precautionary measure.

Approximatley 350 customers were under this boil order.

This applies to the following areas:

  • Lancaster Road
  • Old 81 Loop
  • Old 88 Road
  • Wofford Road
  • Old Bowman Road
  • Kenner Chapel Road
  • Hobbtown Road
  • Highway 162 East from Glenview Drive east to Hobbtown Road
  • All side roads from the main roads

For two consecutive days, bacteriological samples were taken. The samples were found to be safe, and the water is now considered safe for human consumption.
