Friday, January 20, 2023 at 8 a.m., the Coakley Co. will be working to complete an upgrade project and will be tying in a new main near the intersection of River & Richards St. During this time, customers on River from S. Market St to Richards as well as Carter St. & Gunn St. will notice reduced to no water pressure for approx. 2-4 hours. The area affected includes First Baptist Church, however Ringgold Elementary should not be affected.

 

With freezing temperatures forecasted for our area starting Thursday and lasting throughout the weekend and possibly into next week there is a good chance that unprotected water pipes will freeze. When this happens, you may experience only the annoyance of interrupted water service until the water in the pipes thaw. Unfortunately, for a few, the water line may rupture and cause property damage and require plumbing repairs.

There are several preventive measures that can reduce your chances of having your water lines freeze.
