Boil-water alert lifted in West Memphis

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The boil-water alert for West Memphis has been lifted.

This comes after days of problems with the city's water system. Water was non-existent for the city until Tuesday, when repairs caused a brownish liquid to trickle out of faucets.

Officials described the issue as cold weather-related mechanical systems failures.

Both samples came back negative for anything harmful. People are free to eat and cook with the tap water without boiling.
