The Fayette County Water System is installing 18 automatic hydrant flushers in its water distribution system. The units are an effort to improve water quality by reducing the length of time water stays in lines as well as minimizing the amount of water flushed. The shorter the time, also known as water age, the better the quality of water. These units flush water at periodic intervals during the day but operate mostly at night when there is less disturbance to citizens. When you see water blowing out of one of these units there is no cause for alarm. It is a normal function of the unit. The water used in this process is far less than previous flushing methods and is a very small amount when compared to the millions of gallons traveling through the 650+ miles of water mains throughout the Fayette County Water System. Each flusher is programmed to flush the amount necessary for its location. These Automatic Flushing Units (pictured below) will help us be more efficient while delivering a better quality of water to our customers.
The Fayette County Water System Director, Lee Pope said, “The units will be placed near storm drains when possible or a short pipe will be installed to minimize erosion and prevent the ponding of water on resident’s property or in road ways.”
Official installation of the units began April 27, 2016. Water lines are being flushed prior to installation, however, there is a chance residents may notice a slight drop in water pressure and a slight water discoloration during the initiation of this project.
Anyone experiencing discoloration is asked to call the water department at 770-461-1146 Option 5.
Units are being installed throughout the county. Each unit is red in color and has the Water System logo and the phone number to call with any concerns.
Questions or concerns about the process should be directed to Water System Customer Service at 770-461-1146 Option 5.

The Fayette County Planning and Zoning Department is proposing a Starr’s Mill Historic Overlay District and Overlay Zone. The purpose of the Overlay District and Overlay Zone is to regulate non-residential development at the State Route 74, State Route 85 and Padgett Road intersection to protect and promote the historic character of the Starr’s Mill area. These regulations will control non-residential uses and their intensity, and require the buildings to have a turn of the century architectural character. The goals of the Overlay are: (1) maintain the historic character of the area, (2) control the intensity and aesthetic quality of development at the intersection as it is the southern gateway into Fayette County, (3) maintain an efficient flow of traffic at the intersection, and (4) protect existing and future residential areas outside of the intersection. The Fayette County Planning and Zoning Department can be reached at 770-305-5421 for more information.
