Irwinton water system restored, residents still under boil advisory

pramati@macon.comDecember 10, 2012 

Irwinton residents are being urged to boil any water used for consumption or cooking.

The water precautions are being taken after both wells in the city shut down, City Clerk Courtney Robinson said.

The water issues caused Wilkinson County public schools to close Monday, but as of Monday afternoon, the water was back on and residents could use it for hygiene and other purposes. Schools were expected to re-open Tuesday.

Attempts to reach the Wilkinson County Board of Education for comment Monday were unsuccessful.
