BREAKING: Water Main Break in Athens

Athens-Clarke County Utilities crews are currently working to repair a water main break.

The rupture took place at 124 Beachum Drive this morning, and is expected to be repaired by this afternoon. The repairs and break shouldn’t affect water service to homes on the street.

However, residents on Beachum Drive might experience brown water while the repairs are ongoing. Officials say that if you do see brown water in your sink, run your cold water only until the water coming out of the faucet clears up. Then, the water is good to use.

Athens-Clarke County Public Utilities warns that if the water doesn’t clear up after a few minutes, residents should call their Water and Sewer Division at 706-613-3481.
