WARWICK, GA (WALB) -

Water pipes that are more than 70 years old are finally being replaced in Warwick.

Warwick residents had been wondering why shiny red fire hydrants were rolling through town.

The answer is water. The city received a grant to pay for a water system makeover and residents are excited about new pipes to replace troublesome old ones.

Residents say the new pipes have been needed for quite a while.

Norman Hook has lived in Warwick for about 30 years, and dealt with problems with the water system.

Just a few months ago the city had to shut off water for most residents because they had to fix a pipe.

"[For] three hours we couldn't take a shower," said Hook. "We had to wait to cook too."

He recalled times when the water didn't even come out clean after old pipes would burst and dirt got in them.

"The water was muddy looking and I didn't want to drink that," Hood recalled.

Crews were expected to actually begin digging to install the new pipes on Thursday.
