A water main break has forced the closure of schools in Benton County.

The school district confirmed the closings on its website Thursday morning for that day. Around noon Thursday, officials with the school district said they would also be closed Friday, as well.

Officials said the cause was due to a water main break in Camden that caused a precautionary boil water alert.

The City of Camden is located about halfway between Waverly and Huntingdon. 

It’s unknown what caused the break.
