Some 200 water customers in Benton remain under a boil order Friday following a vehicle-versus-hydrant accident late Wednesday.

According to Benton Utilities, water customers on Canterbury, Silica Heights, Summit, Cole Drive, Meyers, Coral Cove, Tiner Cove, Country Oaks Drive, Wakley Cove and south of the Silica Heights Church are urged to boil their water briskly for at least one minute prior to consumption as a precautionary measure.

Samples of the water in the affected area were transported to the Arkansas Health Department for testing Thursday morning. Results are expected to return late Friday afternoon. “Until we receive the results of this test, the boil order will remain in effect,” Benton Utilities said in a news release.
