Heating Energy Assistance

December 2, 2020

During the winter, many of us enjoy the comfort of a warm, cozy home. But thousands of low-income Georgians, including the elderly and disabled, often must choose between staying warm and buying food or paying for medication. As a result, many suffer from the cold weather because they are unable to pay their heating bills. To help with this problem, the City of Perry has partnered with the Heating Energy Assistance Team (HEAT), Inc. Launched in 1983, HEAT provides energy assistance to thousands of our state’s most vulnerable citizens each year and is the oldest statewide fuel fund in Georgia. Qualified households are able to receive help with heating bills regardless of the energy source – natural gas, propane, electricity, oil, wood, coal or other. Call Customer Service at 478-988-2754 for more information.

Water Main Repair/Boil Water Advisory – New Haven/Gurr Road

October 20, 2020

BOIL WATER & WATER MAIN REPAIRS Affected Neighborhoods: Bridgeport Lane Haven Way Worchester Circle Ellington Court Kendall Court Winsted Court Rockport Court Norwalk Court Milford Circle New Hope Drive Bridgeport Lane ESG Operations, Inc. crews are working diligently to restore water to the areas listed above. Once water service resumes – affected residents will be under a Boil Water Advisory. A potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system. In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all citizens that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to “boil” all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. The advisory will be active approximately 24 hours for testing to be completed. An update will be sent out when the advisory is lifted. Citizens should continue to boil their water until they are notified by their drinking water utility that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.

Water System Upgrade | September 28 – October 2

September 25, 2020

The City of Perry is completing a significant upgrade to the City’s water system by commissioning a new, state-of-the art water treatment facility off Tucker Road. Crews will begin the process of bringing the system online on Monday, September 28 and last through October 2. They will flush a portion of the high pressure water system from Highway 341 South to Interstate 75 along Perry Parkway. Customers may experience water service disruption – particularly in the areas adjacent to Perry Parkway.  This may include water sediment/discoloration, drop in water pressure, and temporary loss of service. In an attempt to lessen the impact, crews will complete the majority of this process during the overnight hours. They will begin Monday, September 28 at 8:00 p.m. Be prepared by following these steps… Have Bottled Water Available If you experience discolored water during this time period – use bottled water until your water runs clear. Don’t Wash Clothes In Dirty Water Don’t wash clothes in your washing machine if you notice discolored water. Wait until your water system runs clear to resume using your washing machines. Remove & Clean Faucet Screens Check your aerators (sink screens) on kitchen and bathroom faucets. They may need to be cleaned after we flush the water system. Boil Water For Medical Conditions Anyone with medical conditions or a compromised immune system should plan to boil water for personal consumption. Using bottled water until their water system runs clear is another option. Is Your Ice Maker Filtered? Shut off any unfiltered ice makers until crews are finished flushing the water system after October 2. All About The Clear If you experience water sediment/discoloration – flush your home water system until the water runs clear. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to improve your water system and service. The Tucker Road Water Treatment Facility will support multi-generational water security for the Perry community. Questions? Call 478-988-2754.
