Crews from the Savannah Utility Department are continuing work to repair the leak. Due to the severity of the leak and the limited water storage remaining in the Walnut Grove elevated tank, water service customers from the intersection of Highway 69 and Pyburn Rd to the end of our service area to the South will experience a temporary interruption of water service throughout the day today. This includes the Walnut Grove Community and surrounding areas. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this service interruption, but we assure you that our utility crews are making every effort to restore water service to those affected as soon as possible.
We will continue to update this post as the situation changes.

Savannah Utility Department crews are currently working to repair a water leak near Highway 69, in the vicinity of Horse Creek and Grote Lane, South of Savannah. Water service customers from this location to the intersection of Highway 69 and Holland Creek Road will experience temporary interruption of water service until the leak can be repaired. Water service customers South of Holland Creek Road will continue to receive water from the Walnut Grove elevated tank, but customers in the Walnut Grove community should make efforts to conserve water usage for the time being. This is to ensure water remains available for as long as possible.
We are working hard to restore water service to this area and will post updates here as conditions change.
