A boil order has been implemented for the city of Maynard. The Arkansas Department of Health issued a boil water notice Monday, Sept. 19th.

The boil order will be in effect until at least 1 set of 3 samples show that the water is free of contamination and an adequate disinfectant level is established throughout the water system according to ADH.

The order was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the system due to a main break.

Residents are urged to boil water used for drinking or food preparation for one minute before using.
