Christmas is a joyous occasion that we look forward to each year. The holiday is celebrated with family and friends through the use of food, music, and most importantly giving. It allows us to serve others with acts of kindness and generosity.

Selfless acts of love shown during Christmas can make a difference in the lives of others. Many people are depressed during this time as they long for family members who are no longer with us and others are worried about their financial ability to provide for their loved ones.

You can make an impact in their lives by spending time with those who are alone, helping poor families with gifts for their children, and volunteering at an outreach center such as a homeless shelter. There are many organizations within your community who help facilitate these efforts to give back. Organizations included are local churches, the Salvation Army, and the United Way. Your local newspapers will also keep you informed on ways you can help serve during this holiday season.

Each year, we decorate our North Columbus Water Resources Facility on River Road for Christmas.  If you are in the neighborhood, please drive by and take a look at our Christmas lights.

Also, do not forget to save your holiday cooking grease and bring it to one of our eight drop off locations or to our Grease Recycling and Pharmaceutical Disposal event on January 14!

Columbus Water Works wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We hope the New Year brings you great fortune! Enjoy!

Columbus Water Works recognizes that proper maintenance of our infrastructure is important so that we can provide cost-effective and reliable services to our community.  One essential element of our comprehensive maintenance program is the cleaning and lining of water lines.

Beginning on Friday, December 16th, Columbus Water Works’ contractor, Mainlining, LLC will be replacing a defective six-inch water line valve at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and 8th Street.  This work will involve closing off the southbound turn lane and the northbound left lane on Veterans Parkway from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The contractor will then continue their cleaning and lining work along 8th Street between Veterans Parkway and 6th Avenue.  During this time, the northbound right lane on Veterans Parkway between 7th Street and 9th Street will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Pending any unforeseen conditions, emergency or weather delays, all work is expected to be completed by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 20th.

Columbus Water Works employs many maintenance and rehabilitation programs, such as this cleaning and lining project, to prolong the life and productivity of our infrastructure and prevent water line breaks.

Please follow us on our Facebook page for updates and additional information about this and other construction projects.

Throughout the country there has been rising concern over people posing as utility employees to gain access to a person’s home, business, or banking information.  At the Columbus Water Works (CWW) we take this very seriously, as security is extremely important to us.  So, we created a list of things you, our customer, should know to help identify if you are really dealing with an employee of CWW.

  1. All CWW Employees have a Photo ID Badge identifying their name and employee number.  If you are uncertain of their validity, please ask to see their Badge.  If you are still unsure if they work for CWW, please call 706-649-3400 to speak with a customer service representative to verify their ID Badge and number and if they are assigned to be at your residence.
  2. If there is work being done near your home, a CWW employee may knock on your door to notify you of the work and any disruptions to service, otherwise employees will only come to your home if prior arrangements have been made (investigations, meter installations, etc.).
  3. CWW employees will not come to your home asking for personal information or money.
  4. CWW does not contact customers asking them to make immediate payments over the phone to avoid disconnection of services.  If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to work at the Columbus Water Works asking for immediate payment on your account, please report the issue to the authorities.
