Cochran officials opening drinking water distribution station

    Residents in Cochran may experience low water pressure Thursday night.


    COCHRAN, Ga. -- Cochran emergency responders opened a drinking water distribution site at 12 p.m. Friday for the community.

    The police department said the station will be located at the old shirt factory on Dohl St. in the city of Cochran. It'll reportedly be set up as a drive-through and police are asking that people do not park their vehicles and block traffic.

    Officials add that the community needs to obey the following rules at the drinking water station:

    A person has to currently reside within Cochran or Bleckley County limits to get the water.

    Everyone is required to present a Georgia identification card or driver's license.

    No one is allowed on site before 12 p.m.

    One case of water will be permitted to each household.


    COCHRAN, Ga. -- Residents in Cochran may experience low water pressure Thursday night.

    According to the Cochran Police Department Facebook page, there is an issue with one of the two water wells that currently have power. That issue has caused a significant drop in water pressure.

    WGXA News has learned the Public Works Department is working to fix the problem. They are also waiting on Georgia Power to restore power to the other two wells so that all four can be functional. Officials hope that will happen Friday.
