CCWSA – Canton, GA

A main line was damaged by a contractor on 11/16/17 at 4:45 pm. The break is located at the intersection of Bart Manous Road & Highway 140. This break will cause the subdivision of Harmony on the Lakes to experience discolored water.

Cherokee County Water and Sewerage Authority has had crews on site flushing water from fire hydrants since the break happened. Our crews will not leave until our main lines are clear. We are moving section by section in the subdivision. Once you see our trucks leave an area you can start flushing your private lines to bring the clear water that is out at the street into the house. The best way to do this is by running a bathtub faucet on full force for 10 to 15 minutes (cold water only). This should clear your lines. 

CCWSA offices will be closed on Thursday, November 23rd, and Friday, November 24th in observance of Thanksgiving.
