Welcome to DandridgeWater.com

Serving the Town of Dandridge since 1930, Dandridge Water Management Facility (DWMF) operates and maintains facilities, which provide Dandridge with safe drinking water and treatment of its wastewater.  DWMF obtains water from the Jefferson City Water Department, Knoxville Utilities Board, and Newport Utilities Board.  DWMF maintains the collection and distribution systems, treats wastewater for the citizens of the Town of Dandridge and operates a state certified bacteriological laboratory.

Discolored Water Concerns

While 99% of our customers aren’t experiencing any discolored water issues, we understand that several of you are.  Of the customers experiencing issues, the majority of those issues are due to galvanized plumbing in your homes.  DWMF has some cast iron and galvanized plumbing in our system as well, which is attributing to the discoloration in a few areas.

What are we doing to help alleviate the issue?  In addition to flushing our mains, we have allowed and encouraged customers, who have called in with concerns and received approval, to flush inside their homes; we are adjusting the water bills to average usage so that you are not bearing the cost for the flushing.  As a long-term aid, we have formulated a Replacement Plan to rid all galvanized and cast iron pipe in our system. (The map to the right shows the Replacement Plan.)    Phase I of the plan was completed in October 2017. Phase II, completed in January 2019 and Phase IV began in November 2019 and was completed in 2021.  Phase III (DWMF’s Internal Replacement) remains in progress.

Utility workers made a repair on a main line, which temporarily impacted services in town. The leak source was identified quickly near Swift Way. While the repair is completed, we anticipate the services to be restored within the hour. As the impacted lines and tank refill, the pressures may be lower than normal and air may be present in areas. We apologize for the temporary interruption and impact in service for the affected customers. ... See MoreSee Less
