FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — The City of Fayetteville announced Monday (August 17) that water conservation measures are no longer needed after crews repaired a leaking water transmission line this weekend, according to a release from the city.

Test results from the Arkansas Department of Health came back Saturday and indicated the newly flowing water was safe to drink, the release states. Repairs to the water line continued until 4 a.m. Sunday.

The City of Fayetteville issued the conservation measure Friday after crews found a water transmission line was leaking earlier in the week.

In Monday’s statement, city leaders thanked major customers, including outlying cities and the University of Arkansas, as well as residents for their conservation efforts.
