Drinking Water Advisory Lifted for Portion of Lovejoy/Hampton Area

August 26, 2021 – Clayton County Water Authority (CCWA) officials announce the boil water advisory for customers in the Lovejoy/Hampton area, mainly east of Tara Boulevard from McDonough Road to Talmadge Road and west of Tara Boulevard on Talmage Road and Fuller Street, was lifted today at 11 a.m. The advisory was put into effect August 24 as a precautionary measure after a contractor caused a water main break and a complete loss of pressure in the pipe.

Distribution Maintenance crews worked until 1 a.m. Wednesday completing the repair, flushing, and disinfecting the pipe. Water quality lab staff collected water samples Wednesday for testing, which can take up to 24 hours. All test samples came back negative of any harmful bacteria. Water has been deemed safe to consume so the advisory has been lifted. Customers in other areas of the county were not affected by this advisory.

If customers experience any water quality issues, they can contact CCWA at 770-960-5200 or via Facebook @ClaytonCountyWater.

“We appreciate our customers’ patience and support as our team worked to get the pipe repaired, notify customers and take water samples. It has always been our goal to never have to issue a boil water advisory. However, when circumstances occur out of our control, we must do so for the safety of our customers. I could not be prouder of our team of water professionals and how they pulled together,” adds CCWA General Manager H. Bernard Franks.

Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) was notified immediately of the issue. Customers affected were notified via outbound calls. Information and updates were sent to local media, posted on and on CCWA’s Facebook page: @ClaytonCountyWater.
