The Town of Benton has issued a boil advisory for a small area of their water distribution system. The advisory is for customers located in the Palmetto Park Subdivision area of town.

Benton maintenance crews responded to an emergency water main blowout at 8am Thursday morning and began repairs. Repairs are underway and should be completed this afternoon. During this time, customers within the area had low water pressure.

The advisory is a precautionary measure and recommends those in the affected area to boil their water for one minute before consuming it until the advisory is rescinded. The advisory pertains only to water used for consumption. Again, the advisory is a precautionary measure and not a boil order.

Impacted Benton water customers within this area will be notified when the advisory is rescinded.
