Why is some of the Town’s water discolored?

  • Natural Minerals such as calcium and iron build up inside cast iron and galvanized pipes overtime.
  • We have some galvanized and cast iron pipes in the ground but many homes built before 1980 have those types of pipes in their homes.

Construction Phase & Customer Concern Map

Replacement of the cast iron and galvanized water lines in the DWMF system is in process.  The following is the implementation plan:

  • Phase I:  completed October 2017 by Brockwell Construction
  • Phase II:  awarded to Merkel Brothers Construction
  • Phase III (Internal):  replacement construction already in progress by DWMF

Water Quality Testing

In order to ensure your water is safe, we have performed additional water quality parameter testing.  Along with the regulatory bacteriological samples and chlorine tests, we have conducted lead and copper sampling (select for  LeadCopperSummary_1-10-17).  All of the tests performed exceeded the testing parameters ensuring the water is safe.  If you have any concerns about the quality of your water or the testing performed, please e-mail water@dandridgetn.gov or call 865-397-3696.
