The precautionary boil water notice issued April 29 for residents of Goshen has been lifted.

A water main break east of Wyman Road on Highway 45 last week caused a loss of pressure for more than four hours, affecting customers east of Wyman Road to the end of the Fayetteville water service area.

The affected water main has been repaired, water pressure has been restored, and an adequate disinfectant level has been established throughout the water distribution system, according to Mark Rogers, the city’s water & sewer operations manager. Rogers said a bacteriological survey was completed which indicates that the water is now safe to drink.

For questions, call the city’s water and sewer line at 479-575-8386.
