VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) – Sunday the city of Valdosta flushed out thousands of gallons of water from fire hydrants to get chlorine levels to where they were prior to a power failure that left more than 23,000 customers without water for several hours Saturday.
Water was restored Saturday afternoon when a temporary bypass line was put in place while crews work to fix a faulty switch which prevented generators from starting at the water treatment facility.
We caught up with workers at North Forrest Street and Northside Drive.
They started opening hydrants closest to the treatment plant and gradually worked outward testing the water for minimum chlorine level.
The entire city is still under a boil water advisory for any water used for consumption.
"We'll get the line flushed and get a good chlorine levels throughout the system that's typically is .2 parts per million, once that happens we'll start the bacteria testing we cannot remove the boil water alert until we get approval from EPD," Henry Hicks, Valdosta Utilities Director.
They say the flushing process will be slow and methodical. Right now water pressure has returned to normal.
