Clayton County Water Authority (CCWA) staff continues troubleshooting and finding leaks, mainly in customer service lines. These breaks would have been caused by the below freezing temperatures and continues to impact the distribution system. 

This has led to low pressure or no water service for customers in several parts of the county.

If you have a leak, please report it immediately at 770.960.5200 (listen to the entire message and then select “0”) or via private message on our 

Facebook page @ClaytonCountyWater.
CCWA Officials issued a boil water advisory on December 25 for customers with low pressure. Once water service is restored for customers without service, please continue to follow the boil water advisory as well. 

The estimated timeline of service being restored is unknown. We continue to work to provide water to all Clayton County citizen as soon as possible.

CCWA notified Georgia Environmental Protection Agency of the issue and the boil water advisory.
During this boil water advisory, 

customers with low pressure should:
o Fill a pot with water.
o Heat the water until bubbles come quickly from the bottom of the pot to the top. o Keep heating the water for one more minute.
o Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
o Pour water into a clean, sanitized container with a cover for storage.
Customers should use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water for: o Drinking
