Water customers in the area of Stoneledge Dr. & Majestic Cir. In Maumelle are under Precautionary Boil Water Notice
MAUMELLE, AR – Approximately 85 Central Arkansas Water (CAW) customers in Maumelle along Stoneledge Dr., Majestic Cir. and side streets in this area are under a precautionary boil water notice until further notice. The issuance of the precautionary measure followed a break and loss of pressure on a 10-inch-diameter water line that serves the area. The break occurred at approximately 9:30 a.m. this morning. CAW crews isolated the break by approximately 10:30 a.m. a.m. this morning. CAW crews are still on-site and anticipate completing the repair on the water line by approximately 4:40 p.m. this afternoon.
While under the precautionary notice, 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 notice affects all customers within the following area:

The water utility is notifying customers about the notice with door hanger notices as well as with the posting of large signage at major entrances to the affected area.
The spontaneous break occurred on a 10-inch water line off Millwood. The Arkansas Department of Health requires the issuance of a precautionary boil notice when there is a loss of pressure or service due to a water line break. The Health Department allows the lifting of the notice when water quality samples reveal that water through the main is safe for consumption. The notice 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 notice on Saturday, November 27.
Customers with questions about the precautionary boil water notice may contact the CAW Distribution Dispatch center day or night at (501) 377.1239.
