Water Distribution staff use leak detection equipment and constantly search lines throughout the system for leaks and line breaks. Water loss through leaks is a serious concern, and water customers are asked to report any unusual wet conditions they may observe along county roads or water line right-of-ways. In Northeast Tennessee, water leaks may not show up on the surface because the water finds underground sink holes or caverns. In those situations you often can hear water running, and customers are encouraged to report the sound of water running as well. Water loss can negatively impact all water customers if the loss requires an expensive expansion of the treatment facility before the improvements are really needed.

P2190016Water Line Extensions

The Jonesborough Water System has a water line extension policy that establishes the conditions in which water service can be extended into areas of Washington County served by the Jonesborough system. In normal situations, the Water System will provide the labor and equipment to extend a line provided the person or persons making the extension request covers the cost of pipe and materials. An analysis of water volume available and water pressure must also be undertaken. Approval of any extension must be obtained from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, as well as the Jonesborough Board of Mayor and Aldermen.wdistribution1

 

The Water Distribution staff will provide a detailed breakdown of pipe and materials needed and a current cost-estimate based on the Town's cost for those materials. Ten (10%) percent of the material cost must be made in advance of taking the extension request to the Jonesborough Board of Mayor and Aldermen and initiating the engineering plans that must go to the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation for approval. Once BMA and TDEC approval has been received, the entire materials cost must be paid before line construction begins.
