Grovetown issues water restriction

  • Follow Latest News

Grovetown officials imposed a drought-level outdoor watering restriction on residents because of construction on the city's water system.

The city is operating on two of the its three water storage tanks because the third was dismantled to make way for a new larger one as part of an ongoing water system upgrades, according to Michael Woods, Public Works director.

Residents are allowed to water outdoors from midnight to 10 a.m. on scheduled days. Those with odd numbered address can water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Residents with even-umbered addresses can water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. No outdoor watering is allowed on Monday.

The restriction will continue until further notice.

Roads, water, flood plains

Roads, water, flood plains are of no "consquence" in CC. CC continues to put the "cart before the horse" when it comes to "housing construction". CC is first and foremost a "haven for homebuilders" who can and will do anything they choose. Adding thousands of vehicles to already overcrowded roads is not a problem. Adding thousands of people to an already "overburdened water and sewerage system" is no problem. Pushing sand and clay into "swamps" to build homes that sink into the mud and the HVAC systems separate from the houses is no problem. We can do "infrastructure" latter, what the hey? Bulldoze those "abandoned cemeteries and burial grounds". Those dead are just taking up valuable real estate property. McDonalds learned "over building" can be a bad thing. But they do not have a "blank check from the taxpayers" of CC.

The city of Grovetown remains

The city of Grovetown remains to be the joke of Columbia County. The way the city does business is embarrassing. Take a ride through the city and look at all the city workers standing around watching one or two people do all the work. Water restrictions? Does that mean less chlorine in the water or maybe lower water rates? Shame on you Grovetown for being so many steps behind the rest of the county!
