For the past several years, Columbus Water Works has been diligently working to replace residential and commercial water meters that have reached the end of their useful life.  In accordance with State and Federal requirements, the new residential meters being installed include a built-in backflow prevention device.  This device prevents water from re-entering the public water system once it passes the meter.  These devices may cause a slight change in the water pressure in your home and create a “closed” system that may produce plumbing issues due to thermal expansion. 

In an effort to inform our customers about these potential issues, CWW mails out a certified letter to homes whose meters are being replaced.  We mail these letters several months in advance to allow homeowners an opportunity to prepare for these changes.  The certified letter includes an informational package regarding thermal expansion and a contact number if you have any questions or concerns.

It is important that you review this information so if you get a notice from the post office about a certified letter please pick it up.  The information is very important.

Building Partnerships with Schools and Organizations in our CommunityCreek

The Columbus Water Works (CWW) and Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center have been participating in a program for the past two years sponsored by the Georgia Aquarium called Creeks to Coast. The program takes both Middle School and High School Teachers from the head waters of the Chattahoochee to the Apalachicola Bay learning about water resources, uses and wildlife along the way. Partners include Georgia Power, US Fish & Wildlife, Georgia Pacific, CWW and Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center. CWW provides a tour of the South Columbus Water Resources Facility as part of the program providing teachers with a tour of our state-of-the-art facility and the innovative programs we have at the plant. Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center, in partnership with CWW, provides insight to local flora and fauna of the region. The teachers also get an afternoon to explore the Whitewater project in downtown Columbus.
