COLUMBUS, Ga. – Columbus Water Works is making some major water line improvements throughout the city staring with uptown.
“If you’re walking or driving through the historic district you may have seen one of these signs warning people to proceed with caution because of the temporary above ground water system.”
The project began on November 9th and Columbus Water Works is in the first stages of laying above ground piping for temporary water service.
The company is using a technology called piging to clean the pipes.
More than 10,000 linear feet of water lines between Front Avenue and 5th Avenue will undergo maintenance.
Pipes will be cleaned and relined and the project is expected to take 120 days.
Columbus Water Works says this cleaning and lining project is one of the many maintenance and rehabilitation programs that prevent water line breaks in the future.
