Getting water in Bald Knob

Richard Sanchez, a Bald Knob School District HVAC / maintenance employee, draws water from a National Guard water buffalo Wednesday morning on campus. Plenty of extra bottled water also was available with much of the community under a boil order from a water main break Monday afternoon. On-campus classes had been canceled Tuesday because of the boil order.

UPDATE: The boil order was lifted at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Bald Knob students were provided with drinking water out of Arkansas National Guard water buffaloes Wednesday after the city had to repair a broken water line that resulted in a boil order and on-campus classes being canceled Tuesday.
