Precautionary Boil Water Notice for areas of Maumelle

Country Club Pky – Maumelle Boil Notice Area Map

MAUMELLE, AR – Approximately 360 Central Arkansas Water (CAW) customers in Maumelle at the eastern end of Country Club Parkway, past the intersection of Sologne Forest Dr., are under a precautionary boil notice until further notice. The issuance of the precautionary measure followed a break and loss of pressure on a 12-inch-diameter water line that serves the area.  The break occurred at approximately 10:30 a.m. this morning. CAW crews isolated the break by approximately 11:15 a.m. and provided a temporary feed to 300 of the 360 customers by 12:15 p.m. CAW crews are still actively working on the repair at this time and anticipate restoring service to the water line by approximately 3 p.m. this afternoon.

While under the precautionary order, affected customers should:

  • bring water from the household tap to a brisk boil for at least one (1) minute before using it for drinking, beverage or food preparation, or dishwashing
  • discard ice cubes from automatic icemakers

The boil water order affects all customers within the following area:

  • Baronne Way
  • Bonnard Cv.
  • Cabanel Dr.
  • Chamberry Dr.

  • Charmante Cv.
  • Danielle Cir.
  • Dauphine Pl.
  • Michele Ct.
  • Sologne Forest Dr.

The water utility is notifying customers about the order with the posting of large signs at major entrances to the affected area.

The break occurred when a contractor damaged the 12-inch water line on Country Club Pkwy.  The Arkansas Department of Health requires the issuance of a precautionary boil order when there is a loss of pressure or service due to a water-line break.  The Health Department allows the lifting of the order when water quality samples reveal that water through the main is safe for consumption.  The order is a precautionary measure in the event bacteriological contamination of the water line occurred during the damage and subsequent loss of pressure.

Once the water line is back in service, CAW personnel will collect water quality samples.  The utility anticipates having the results of the tests and lifting the order on Saturday evening.

Customers with questions about the precautionary boil water order may contact the CAW Distribution Dispatch Center day or night at (501) 377.1239.
