What the….. We don’t have any water? This question was asked by virtually everyone on the southern and eastern end of Jonesboro this past Thursday as a major blowout in the line on the Beech Springs Road caused an outage that lasted for hours.
Eventually the water crew of the Jonesboro Public Works system got things back on line but the after effect was that there was a Boil Advisory in place until the lines could be cleared and purified. That was lifted the next day and everything was back in working order as normal.
As one resident who wished not to be identified said. “You don’t think about the guys who work on the lines every day until you don’t have any water, but you sure are thankful for them after they get your water back running.” Well said!
