April 25, 2018 Update

Posted to President Street Project by Chris Parrish

Utility work on President Street and General McIntosh Boulevard is mostly complete.  Paving crews have moved to East Broad to mill asphalt and relay a new top layer asphalt.  The top of the hill on President Street and the area between Truman Parkway and the rail road tracks will be completed next making the surrounding areas blend with the new pavement on President Street and General McIntosh Boulevard.  Expect temporary lane closures as crews are finishing up milling, paving and painting lanes.  Substantial completion of the project should wrap up in May 2018.

2020 Fix a Leak Week

Posted to WaterWays by Saja Aures

This month, March 16 kicks off Fix a Leak Week, the annual national campaign to raise awareness about water leaks in the home, how very costly they can be, and how fixing leaks promptly helps save you money and preserves our limited fresh drinking water supply.

Household leaks waste more than 1 trillion gallons annually nationwide. That's equal to the annual household water use of more than 11 million homes. Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. Common types of leaks found in the home include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. All are easily correctable and in most cases fixture replacement parts don't require a major investment. 

Should you experience a leak in your home and you’re faced with the resulting high water bill, remember the City of Savannah offers leak adjustments once you’ve repaired the leak and provided appropriate documentation of the repair. Visit our website to learn more

During Fix a Leak Week, the City of Savannah Utility Services team will be giving away free toilet leak detection tablets to customers who visit our offices at 305 Fahm Street during the week of March 16 (while supplies last). We also encourage folks to visit our web page for Fix a Leak Week, www.savannahga.gov/fixaleak, as it includes helpful information on how to find and repair common leaks in and around the home.
