CITY WATER NOT UNDER BOIL WATER ADVISORY

TO RESOLVE POSSIBLE CONFUSION

If you are on the Lumpkin County water system please take note of this boil water advisory on the Lumpkin County Government Facebook page. 

If you make payments to the City of Dahlonega for your water service this advisory does NOT apply to you. The City water supply has remained safe to drink due to back up diesel generators that turned on to continually process drinking water throughout the storm. 

Once again, if you make payment to the LCWSA, you should follow the advice of their advisory in the link above. If you make payments to the City of Dahlonega for water service, your water is safe to drink.

 
9/12/17 Storm Update

After a night of very strong winds throughout Dahlonega and Lumpkin county, several trees have fallen and are blocking roadways. City crews have been working throughout the night to clear these trees and will continue these efforts throughout today. Due to high winds Georgia Power will not deploy crews to repair downed power lines until sometime this morning.

Due to many roads being closed because of fallen trees City garbage service for today will be shifted until tomorrow, weather permitting. City Hall will be open for business as usual today. 

We are thankful that all city staff has remained safe throughout the storm and hope the same for your family!

Hydrant Maintenance and Line Flushing

The Importance of Flushing Water Lines 

Regular hydrant maintenance helps protect our community's health and safety.

The process of periodically "flushing" fire hydrants is a necessary preventive maintenance activity. This process is part of a required maintenance program to maintain the integrity of the water system and to continue to deliver the highest quality water possible to our customers. Flushing activity is used for two general purposes: Water Quality and Hydrant Maintenance.

Water Quality

Flushing the water system on a regular basis removes sediment from lines and keeps the entire distribution system refreshed.

Hydrant Maintenance

Every fire hydrant is flushed annually for preventative maintenance to ensure proper operation and available flow. Annual hydrant testing involves opening the hydrant enough to ensure there are no restrictions in the hydrant or piping, so that it is useable by Fire crews if needed. The entire flushing usually lasts only minutes. Hydrants also are tested when first installed and for insurance and design purposes.

When maintenance is performed residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration primarily consists of harmless silt and precipitates and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in your water after crews have been flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your own home by running all water faucets, starting with faucets outside first, for a minute or two.


This same philosophy of water line preventive maintenance is one that you should use in your own home. Your home's water heater should be drained and flushed at least once a year to keep it working efficiently and to protect the quality of water inside your home. Also, if you go out of town and there is no water use in your home for a week or more, when you return it's always a good idea to run all your faucets for a minute or so before using the water. This ensures that you do not use any stagnant water that may have developed in your home's pipes while you were away.

Questions about water line flushing can be directed to Customer Service Representatives by calling (706) 864-6133.
