SEWER LINE REHABILITATION ON NORTHWEST AREA OF DOUGLAS

The City of Douglas Water Department and ESG would like to notify citizens that contractors for the City of Douglas will be working to rehabilitate sewer lines on the northwest side of town (Wheeler Park heading west to Touchton Woods or Hwy 32 North to Hwy 441 West).  In the rehabilitation process, contractors will be utilizing fire hydrants to clean the lines.  While no cross contamination is possible, the large draw of water from the hydrants may cause water to become discolored.  Discoloration is due to iron deposits in the water lines breaking loose during flushing.  Although this discoloration does not pose a health risk, customers are advised to use caution as it may stain clothing. 

If a customer notices a cloudy, rust colored appearance of their water, please make sure to run water until it runs clear to remove any build up in the waterline, especially before using water for washing or cooking.  If the water does not run clear after ten to fifteen minutes of running please notify the Water Department at 912-389-3425 or the customer care center at 311.
