7/27/17 Boil Water Order

The Benton City Water Department would like to issue a boil water order for residents along the first 5 blocks of West Church Street from South Main. We’re also asking customers along Pope Street, for 6 blocks on both the east and west sides of the street, from South Main down, to please boil your water as well. For safety purposes, anyone else who may have experienced low pressure during the break today is also asked to temporarily boil your water. We’ll be sure to keep our website and Facebook up to date with a time and date the boil water order is lifted. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
