UAMS Water Leak Cause of Red Water in Ditch

Press Release

(Little Rock, AR – 12/7/12)


The water in 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 trying 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.
