water boil means they have found something in the water not good and that you should boil the water before drinking and or cooking with it.they areclosing the school for a day until they can set things up better for the kids as far as drinking water and for cooking in the kitchen.probably a good call given the circumstances in having short time to get things ready for school.

Colcord is very close to the Arkansas state line...any large chicken operations nearby? Could this be related to chicken litter getting into the water supply?

i actually live in Colcord and my kids go to school here, well, not tomorrow anyways--LOL, but no this isn't anything to do with the chickens around here. From what i hear it is something to do with the pump. Not sure, but yes, it does seam to be a yearly problem. Seams like those poor guys are ALWAYS working on the water. I am lucky enough to live in the country and have a well.
