UPDATE: Houston Co. boil advisory lifted
According to a release from the city of Warner Robins, the boil advisory that was put in place on August 9 has been lifted.
UPDATE 9 P.M.
HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Mandy Stella, assistant to Warner Robins mayor Randy Toms, said crews still don't know why the water main broke. It took workers about three hours to fix the break because of a gas line in the area.
Even with the break fixed, residents of six neighborhoods will still be in a boil advisory watch until about 12 p.m. on Friday, August 10:
- Sandy Springs
- Peach Blossom Terrace
Stay with WGXA to find out what may have caused this break.
UPDATE 12:40 P.M.
WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- A boil advisory is in effect until Friday afternoon for a number of Warner Robins Utilities customers.
The City of Warner Robins says a 12 inch Houston County water main break is causing water pressure in parts of the water system to drop to low levels.
These areas included are:
- Sandy Springs
- Peach Blossom Ter.
UPDATE 12:10 P.M.
HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Officials say the main has been fixed and workers are now flushing the lines.
A boil advisory is in effect for the area until Friday afternoon.
HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Those in Bonaire on Peach Blossom Road will be without water for another three hours, possibly, according to officials.
According to Dan Walker, the utility superintendent of Houston County Public Works, calls of low water pressure began coming in just before 8 a.m. Thursday.
He says they've narrowed the problem area down to between Franklin Square and Feagin Mill Road. He adds it's going to take a little longer than normal, as there is a gas main in the area and they're trying to pinpoint it before digging.
Once the break is fixed, the lines still have to be flushed out.
Walker says, right now, about 200 homes are without water.
