Residents in a Williamson County subdivision say they are concerned about the brown, murky water that has been coming out of their faucets this week.

Officials with Nolensville College Grove Utility District began receiving calls Monday from concerned homeowners in the Fountainbrooke, Willowmet and Bonbrooke neighborhoods east of Concord Road reporting contaminated water.

“The neighbors had mentioned their might be something going on with the water,” said Melody Gaither, a concerned NCGUD customer.

NCGUD District General Manager Charles Strasser said the dirty water may have been triggered when crews installed a new water line as part of the Concord Road widening project last Friday.

Crews were dispatched to those homes dealing with the discolored water and began flushing out the lines in an effort to clean it.

Strasser said the water may not be appealing to look at, but it is safe to drink.

“They took samples, the samples came back negative,” said Strasser.

While most of the nearly 300 customers finally have their clean water back, Strasser said he has received a few calls Friday with residents reporting the issue.

“We thought we had it cleared up Monday, but it keeps coming back so all can say is we’ll stay on top of it and we will respond as quickly as possible,” said Strasser.

Strasser said it could take a few more days for the water to be completely flushed out for those residents still dealing with the discolored water.

Customers who are still affected by the contaminated water are urged to call the Nolensville College Grove Utility District hotline at 615-776-2511.
