Winter Weather Tips
Over the next few days, our area is expected to have severe cold weather. When temperatures fall below 32 degrees, water pipes are at risk of freezing and bursting. Even tiny cracks can release hundreds of gallons of water a day, which will cause your bill to skyrocket and cause flooding and structural damage to your home. Below are tips to help with your water pipes.
💧Learn where your customer’s water shutoff valve is.
💧Make sure the pipes in your house are protected from freezing.
💧Remove your water hoses and cover the spigots.
💧If you have a sprinkler system still running make sure it is not scheduled to run while the temperatures are below freezing.
💧Open cabinet/vanity doors so that warm air can reach the pipes underneath your sinks.
💧 Leave water dripping or trickling slowly from your faucets.
💧Wrap any pipes you have access to.
💧Closely monitor all pipes
Here are some more tips on how to prepare for winter weather.

Water Boil Advisory
As a precaution, the City of Lavonia Water Department is issuing a boil advisory effective immediately (as of Thursday, September 15th, 2022 1:45 PM) due to a broken main water line. This boil advisory is to remain in effect until otherwise noted. Please follow our official page for updates and share this post.
The water boil advisory applies to the following streets in the City of Lavonia:
Gumlog Road (Between Gumlog Grove Road to Rue Chalet)
Gumlog Grove Road
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, this includes but is not limited to: making ice (including fountain drinks), brushing teeth, food preparation, & the rinsing of foods.
It is advised that affected residents boil water for consumption for one full minute in a clean container. The one-minute time limit starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Once the water has been boiled, you may improve the taste of the water by shaking it in a closed container, by pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.
Once this boil advisory has been lifted we will post an update on our page & website.
Thank you to our Water Department for working quickly and efficiently to correct this issue. We appreciate your hard work.
