DAMASCUS, GA (WALB) – Almost an entire south Georgia city is without water Wednesday night, after the city well broke overnight.
About 115 households in Damascus woke up to no water Wednesday. Throughout the afternoon, city workers handed out cases of drinking water.
Crews are working to get the water back on, but we're told it could take up to three days to replace the well.
Last month, the city engineer told city leaders the well was in dire need of repair and that immediate action needed to be taken.
