Decatur Operations Manager Jeremy Gilbert reported four additional water line breaks throughout the city overnight, with all classified as relatively minor, effecting only individual residents as connections from their homes to the city’s water system ruptured as pressure was returned to normal following Monday’s major water main break.
“The water towers were refilled to full capacity by 8:16 a.m.” Thursday, Gilbert said, adding the boil water order instituted by the county health department is still in effect. “Hopefully, it will be lifted this afternoon,” Gilbert said about the boil water requirement. “All samples have been taken, and we’re just waiting to hear back from them” (health department) that all concerns surrounding potential contamination of the city’s water supply have been addressed and eliminated.
Gilbert stated “everything is going very well” with regard to city services, and that residents have been both extremely understanding and patient during the recent deep freeze and the problems related to it.
