Damascus water is safe to drink

Posted: Updated:

DAMASCUS, GA (WALB)--The boil water advisory is lifted for people who live in Damascus.

Mayor Pro Tem Nathaniel Thompson says tests show the water is fine to drink.

The water was turned back on last week after the city's aging pump failed for the second time in seven months which left the town dry.

Thompson said the current repair is temporary, but could last up to a year.

The city of Damascus hopes to have a new system in place within a year.
