A main water line burst on Price Mill Road in Bostwick last weekend, which resulted in the loss of 75,000 gallons of water for the city of Bostwick.  “We lost the entire tank,” said Mayor John Bostwick. The City of Bostwick has not yet calculated the cost of repairs nor determined the cause of the damage.

The city hired Athens Plumbing to repair the line early Sunday and the company finished the repairs by noon. Mayor Bostwick assured that water service will be fully restored this week.

“Water service resumed by Sunday evening, but whenever you have a main line bust like this, you are going to have dirty water for a few days,” explained Bostwick. “We have been working diligently to pump the lines to speed up the process.”

Mayor Bostwick was grateful for the speedy repair and cooperation of the community.

We just want to thank every one in the community for being patient while we did the repairs on the line and we appreciate everyone who helped us deal with this,” said Bostwick.
