Senoia without water after main break

by Wes Mayer

Senoia experienced a water main break Friday-, shutting down water service in the eastern Coweta city between 9 and 11 a.m.

According to Senoia City Administrator Richard Ferry, the main break may have occurred around 4:30 a.m.

Ferry said he wasn’t sure if the main broke due to the extreme cold temperatures, listed by weather officials around 13 degrees Friday morning, because it should have been buried deep enough to not be affected by the weather.

It was more likely the main was just ready to break, and it happened to be on a Friday in a busy district during one of the coldest days of the year, Ferry said.

Ferry said the Senoia Public Works Department under Director Randy Padgett worked hard to fix the problem and Senoia’s water is back to working properly.
