Hickman County Water Issues Could Last Three More Days
Autoplay:Play Video0:00 0:00: 0%: 0%LIVE -0:00 CENTERVILLE, Tenn. – Hickman County residents could likely go without clean water for the next three days as the town tries to unclog its water system.
According to Public Works Director Danny Hudgins, water backed up from the Duck River has clogged grates allowing water into the Centerville water treatment plant.
Hudgins said he hopes people understand they’re working day and night to fix the problem.
"Especially when it floods like this backs up, that causes Swan Creek not to run as good," he said.
Until then, residents in the county with running water are advised to boil their water as a precaution.
Those without running water can go to the Centerville Maintenance Department at 128 North Central Avenue in Centerville to get cases of bottled water.
Residents in the county reported local grocery stores are picked clean of water.
"They’re giving some away here which is very nice of them.
So, no bathing."
