The City of Demorest is making emergency repairs on Georgia Street today due to a major waterline break.
The city says the work will affect customers on Georgia Street from Oak Avenue south to Piedmont College Circle. Also affected are customers around Laurel Avenue from Georgia Street to Florida Street.
Out of precaution, city officials are advising all water customers of the City of Demorest in the affected areas to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. Citizens should continue to boil water until they are further notified by the City of Demorest that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.
Anyone with questions can contact City Hall at 706-778-4202.
