Did you know that water pressure and flow reliability impact a homeowners insurance rates?  Each city receives a safety rating based on several factors; fire protection and water reliability are among these factors.  The city of Columbus, GA is rated at a level 2.  The levels range from 10 to 1; 1 being the best.  There are only 20 cities in Georgia rated at a level 2, none are rated level 1.

Consistent water flow and pressure are important to public safety because firefighters use fire hydrants as a means of putting out dangerous fires.  Fire hydrants require significant water flow and strong pressure to propel enough water at a burning home or building to put out the fire and prevent it from spreading. 

CWW works closely with the Columbus Fire Department to ensure that our water system maintains proper pressure and flow for our Firefighters to help protect our community.
