As of Wednesday evening, September 30, James Fork water users remain under a boil order. That order includes the City of Greenwood.
The boil order has been in effect since Friday, September 25. The Arkansas Department of Health notified area water users on Monday, September 28 that James Fork’s water samples were “bacteriological absent and established chlorine residuals were found.”
James Fork submitted a second set of tests on Tuesday, and are awaiting those results.
According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), water should be brought to a “rolling boil for one minute”.
