The City of Summerville is preparing to upgrade the water meters on the Water System. At the same time, the back-flow check valve at each customer's meter that prevents water from accidentally flowing back into the public water system is proposed to be checked and replaced if needed or adding a back-flow check valve if one is not present. The back-flow check valve that the City is proposing is a requirement of the Georgia EPD in order to protect the overall Water System from cross-contamination.

Each customer should have a qualified person check his or her water heater thermal expansion release valve to ensure that it is working properly and replace the valve if it is not. It is recommended that you install a thermal expansion tank on your water heater to eliminate problems with the temperature and pressure valve. Generally, a failed thermal expansion valve might allow water to back-flow into the water system if a back-flow valve is not in place. A faulty thermal expansion valve could cause the residents water plumbing to burst under excess pressure. The customer is responsible for any thermal expansion occurrence in their plumbing and replacing, repairing said thermal expansion valves.

If you have any questions, please call Terry Tinney at (706) 859-0907.
