Boil Water Notice LIFTED: At 8:00 P.M. the Arkansas Department of Health released all areas affected by the November 27, 2021 “Boil Water Order” issued in the City Corporation service area.
The area of 4th Street to 7th Street between South Boston Avenue and South Erie Avenue was issued a “Boil Water Order” as a precautionary measure from the Arkansas Department of Health which is served by City Corporation in Russellville, located in Pope County, Arkansas.
This “Boil Water Order” was issued as a precautionary measure because of the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as the result of temporary loss of water pressure due to a water main leak.
Bacteriological samples taken on Saturday, November 27, 2021 and were found safe for human consumption and the “Boil Water Order” is hereby lifted.
City Corporation would like to announce that we are launching a new mass notification system called RAVE Alert to keep our customers informed of any construction that might disrupt their service as well as any boil water orders in effect. For more information about this system or to add your name to the call list please go to https://www.citycorporation.com/rave-alert-system/ for more information on how to join.
UPDATE: Construction is complete and all customers should have a full return of services!—NOTICE: Monday, November 22, 2021, City Corporation Construction Department and Blackstone Construction will be performing the shutdown and abandonment of an old cast iron water main. City Corporation customers between West 4th Place and West 8th Street and South Glenwood Avenue & South Independence Avenue may be temporarily out of water service between the hours of 8:00 A.M. – 3:30 P.M. First State Bank and the 500 Building on South El Paso Avenue will also be included in this construction. We are taking all necessary measures to avoid a precautionary boil order.

City Corporation donated approximately 1000 reusable water bottles to the Russellville School District this morning. As part of the school’s COVID mitigation strategies, the school’s drinking water fountains are closed to students directly taking a drink from the fountain. Student’s are only allowed to refill a water bottle from the fountains. In order to help provide water for student’s that don’t have a reusable water bottle City Corporation decided to donate our race water bottles to serve this need in our community. These bottles are reusable, recyclable, and BPA-free!
