A water main on Town Creek Road was hit last night and burst, causing water to be out for several hours in the surrounding areas. The Eatonton-Putnam Water Sewer Authority has issued a boil water advisory, in effect until 7 p.m. today (Feb. 18).
A cable company contractor reportedly was digging under the road on Town Creek Road and hit a water line. As a result, residents on Town Creek Road, Sam Farley West, Sam's Way and Nick's Way were all without water, and are currently under a boil-water advisory.
EPWSA crew members were immediately notified and had water restored within three hours said Acting Police Chief Howell Cardwell, who commented "they did an amazing job getting it fixed that fast considering what all they had to work with."
