Mayflower officials: area drinking water not affected by oil spill

Mayflower officials reported that the area drinking water supply has not been impacted by the oil spill that occurred on March 29. 

Raymond Arnold, Mayflower Water Superintendent, confirmed that the city’s drinking water is safe and that the city will continue to work with Community Water System to monitor the water supply. 

Community Water System manages the Mayflower’s water supply, which is sourced from Greer’s Ferry Lake, located about 65 miles northeast of Mayflower.

Community Water System is regulated by the Arkansas Department of Health and guided by the National Safe drinking Water Act. The Community Water System monitors both treated and untreated water for 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure that Mayflower’s drinking water is safe and healthy.
