On Monday January 11th, the City of Douglas Water Department/ESG, Operations will begin the process of connecting a new water main on HWY 32 West. Earlier this year, a water line was relocated for the DOT project which widened HWY 32 West. To connect the new water main, customers will experience a disruption of water services and discolored water. Water may be temporarily disconnected at locations. When this happens, water will become rusty or cloudy. Before washing clothes or cooking, please allow the water run to run clear before using it. Customers who experience water discoloration, should allow the water to run until it runs clear. This will clear the line of any rust that might have dislodged from the pipes.
Please be mindful of the construction projects and employees working on the roadside. Drivers may want to allow more time to reach destinations during the construction period.
We apologize for any inconvenience and if there are questions or concerns, please call the City of Douglas Water Department at 912-389-3444.
