Berryville's original water supply came from a well which continually struggled to keep up with the town's growing needs.  While a proposal to
bring water from Johnson Spring was made in 1911, the plan did not come to fruition until June 9, 1934.  In 1949 an additional water line was laid from Bunch Spring to assist in the ever-increasing demands.  Since 1983, the City has purchased water from the Carroll-Boone Water District and provides the residents with their water needs.  For information on starting water service and payment policies as well as other utility billing information, visit the Berryville Water Department web site.  For a water or sewer EMERGENCY after hours, please call (870) 423-3749

The sewer system in Berryville consists of approximately 172,334 lineal feet of gravity sewer lines and seven sewage lift stations which pump the sewage to the Berryville Waste Water Plant.  The design flow capacity of the plant is 2.4 million gallons per day but if necessary the plant could handle seven million gallons in a day.  At the present time the average daily flow is 1.3 million gallons per day.  Despite the "nature of the business", the Berryville Waste Water Plant is an attractive facility nestled in a beautiful country setting on the outskirts of town.

The Berryville Public Works Department is at your service, maintaining and repairing water and sewer lines, taking care of the streets in your neighborhood and planning for the continued growth of the City.  Kirby Murray, the Public Works Director is dedicated to making sure our town's infrastructure is in the best possible condition for the comfort and convenience of the citizens. 

Carl Goins, the City's Building Inspector, has over seventeen years of experience under his tool belt.  As a certified electrician, volunteer fireman and having served as president of the Homebuilder's association and of COAR (Code Officials of Arkansas), not to mention constant continuing education seminars, no one knows building code like Carl.  If you're planning a building project whether, it be a home, commercial building or even fence or deck, your visit with the Building Inspector is sure to be informative and helpful.

Berryville's Animal Control Officer can usually be seen patrolling the streets of Berryville each day ensuring that City Ordinance is followed by pet owners for the safety of not only the citizens but our furry friends as well.  Please call (870) 350-1669.
