Change in Water

water-tank
We are in the process of removing the old epoxy lining, and installing a new one in our elevated water tank on Cartersville Street.  This project is expected to be finished by October 25th, 2016.  This elevated tank is what pressurizes our system.  With it out of service we are buying all of our water from the Cherokee County Water and Sewer Authority.  You may notice a slight difference in taste, and a change in pressure, but this is to be expected when changing water sources.  The water being delivered to your meter now is taken from the Etowah River instead of a ground water source.  We should be back on our own water source by October 25th.
