Dougherty County Public Works prepares for possible Christmas weather threats

 Dougherty County Public Works officials continue to watch for flooding problems, even though they don't expect major problems. 

Wednesday workers tested large pumps and emergency equipment in case they are needed.  

Officials say even though the threat of flooding has decreased, they're keeping a close watch on usual trouble spots.

"Making sure our reservoirs and ponds are down low,' said Dougherty County Public Works Assistant Director Chuck Mathis. "We went and did some checking on those.  Making sure our pumps and our automatic systems will come and go off.  They are working properly."

Public works officials will continue to monitor ponds and creeks to make sure there are no flooding issues over the Christmas holidays.
