Hot Springs Village water main break causes outdoor watering ban | News
HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, Ark. (KTHV) - Around 3:45 a.m. a main water line broke in Hot Springs Village. The pipe unleashed nearly 1 million gallons of water before crews got it plugged around 7:00 a.m.
The Property Owners' Association banned all outdoor water use and also encouraged limited indoor use until the city's water supply can recover this evening.
Randy Noles, the director of Public works explains how the water levels in the tanks are rising, "If we keep it at around 20 feet, we're doing good... we're at 22.5' so we recovered from like 5-6' this morning to that point."
Hot Springs Village water supply used 99 percent of the available water yesterday, which is the largest water-usage day in the city's history. The Public works department will let us know when they lift the ban on outdoor watering.
