Tennessee American Water replaces valve

28 June 2017

Tennessee American Water safely completed the installation of a new 24-inch valve in June, 2017. The original valve had caused pressure issues and water outages. The work was performed during nighttime hours to lessen the effect on the approximately 150 customers in the impacted area. The Company put into service an emergency connection in cooperation with Eastside Utility District and the Chattanooga Fire Department and installed a temporary pipe at the site of the broken valve. These measures were put into place to restore water service until the permanent repair was made.
