News & Notices
August 13, 2020:
This morning, the Franklin County Water System (FCWS) experienced a large water main break. As a result of the break, water pressure in parts of the water system dropped to low levels. When this occurs a potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system. The FCWS has isolated the issue and normal service has resumed. As water is restored to your area, you may need to turn on several faucets throughout your home for a brief time to remove the air and any sediment from your pipes.
In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are under a boil advisory until further notice. Customers are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil.
If you have any questions, please contact the FCWS at 706-384-3318. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.
