Columbus Water Works wishes you a Happy Halloween and wants to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones as you enjoy the festivities. Below are safety tips that will help in making this a fun and safe holiday experience.


  • The Columbus Police Department advises trick-or-treating between 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
  • Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
  • When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.
  • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  • Do not let your kids eat anything until you come home and check the candy first.
In addition to trick-or-treating, other family functions are being held in our community in celebration of Halloween. Muscogee Moms has a Fall Festival guide, which lists many events where you and your family can safely have fun.

Be safe and enjoy your Halloween.

Columbus DayOn October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus was the first European to discover the North American continent, which was referred to as the New World at that time. His discovery was the beginning of what would become later, our great nation, the United States of America.  

President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday in 1937. It was originally observed annually on October 12th, but in 1971, the observance day was changed to the second Monday of every October. Today, the holiday is joyously celebrated in remembrance of Christopher Columbus’s achievements and contributions to America. 

Columbus Water Works wishes you a happy Columbus Day as we celebrate what many view as the birth of America.  In observance of Columbus Day, our offices will be closed on Monday, October 10th, 2016. Emergency Crews will be available, if you have a leak or other water related emergencies, please call 706-649-3400.

Enjoy your holiday! For more information on the history of Columbus Day, please visit: http://www.history.com/topics/exploration/columbus-day
