  • Follow Latest News

A water main break caused several Columbia Country neighborhoods to lose water.

At about 3 p.m., a water main on Hereford Farm Road near Columbia Road broke causing residents in the River Birch and Fairington subdivisions and along Hereford Farm Road, Huntfied Road and Calloway Road Extension to lose water, according to Pam Tucker, Columbia Emergency and Operations Division director.

A pre-recorded message was sent by phone to the affected areas.

Water Utility crews are working to repair the break. Water service will be restored as soon as possible, Ms. Tucker said.

Once water service is restored, resident may notice a discoloration of the water once it is restored. If the water does not run clear after flushing faucets for a few minutes, call the Columbia County Water Utility between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. at (706) 863-6928 or after hours at (706) 860-2587.

BOBO - She has the resources

BOBO - She has the resources to notify residents and keep them informed about what is going on. I certainly appreciate her efforts. Why don't you get off the computer and go help them dig up the pipe, you seem more qualified for work like that.

If you don't have water, that

If you don't have water, that is an emergency. You can't cook, you can't bathe, and you can't use toilets. If the water is cut off for hours or days, what do you propose, Bobo?

Bobo, there are bigger

Bobo, there are bigger problems in government than Pam Tucker keeping residents of Columbia County informed... besides, once my water was out and it was this site that I checked first, and there was a release from Pam Tucker explaining what happened... funny thing about news print... if you don't like it you don't have to read it
