On Monday, September 18, a break occurred on a 6-inch water line at 9629 Highway 270 in Perla. 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.
