Boil order at resort, Mount Ida

Posted By on Mon, Jun 10, 2013 at 9:07 AM

The Montgomery County Regional Water Authority has issued a precautionary boil order for folks in Mount Ida and Oden/Pencil Bluff, an area that includes the Mountain Harbor resort and condos on Lake Ouachita.

The storms that passed through two weeks ago not only raised the water level on Lake Ouachita six feet, they flooded the county reservoir, sending debris and creating a "spike in turbidity," the authority says in its boil order to residents. Water is being tested in Little Rock today; residents and summer vacationers should hear something from the Authority tomorrow on when the order is lifted.

The authority recommends tossing all ice cubes and boiling water for one minute prior to drinking or using for cooking and cleaning.
