North Athens residents might see some brown water

Some north Athens residents might see some brown water exiting their faucets in the next couple of days.

 

The Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities Department worked on Thursday to repair a water main break on Fairway Drive in a neighborhood north of the Athens Country Club.

Public Utilities noted in a Thursday advisory that the break might take several hours to repair.

As a results of the repairs, residents in the Fairway Drive area might see brown water, noted the advisory. The discoloration is as a result of sediment being stirred up in the lines.

Public Utilities said the water is safe. Running taps for several minutes should clear up the water.

For more information, or to report discolored water that does not clear up, call Public Utilities at (706) 613-3481.
