Some Little Rock water is red for a while | News
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A portion of the water in the city of Little Rock was red on Friday afternoon.
In a press release issued by the city spokesperson, water in the Plateau Ditch in the vicinity of UAMS (Pine/Cedar & Markham intersection) is red due to a leak. This color is caused by a dye added to the UAMS hot water circulation system. The dye is not toxic or harmful.
UAMS is working to find the water leak. Under usual operations, the UAMS water circulation system does not connect into the City of Little Rock's storm water system.
According to ADEQ, this red dye does not constitute a safety or health hazard.
