County water will finally be coming to the Cliffview section of Carroll County beginning with a “Turning on the Tap Ceremony” Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Cliffview Church of God.

Carroll County PSA Executive Director Jessica Montgomery shared the news with the Authority during its Sept. 12 meeting.

“Great news today that Cliffview is almost finished. It’s good to see a project when it is coming to the end and this one is very, very close so we are excited about that,” Montgomery said. “During the past month the contractor has been installing water lines, primarily along Fries Road, and the majority of all water lines in the project have been installed. The contractor has been concentrating on the line flushing and pressure testing with approximately 80 percent testing completed. As of (Sept. 9), everything was pressure tested.”

Montgomery said a change order is being processed to extend the water along Fries Road into Grayson County and upsizing the water line along Lincoln Road. Those are the only two sections left, she said.

“During the upcoming month the contractor plans to complete all remaining pipework, proceed with the change order once approved by all parties, and continue with the testing so the system can be placed into service,” Montgomery said.

The project extends water service into the Cliffview community from its existing Hebron Water System. The water connects at Creekview Drive and water extends to Sylvia Lane, Cliffview Road, Iron Ridge Road, Fries Road, Revere Road, Gambetta Road, Lincoln Road, Blackstone Lane, Foxfire Lane, Live Oak Lane, Trading Post Road and Windmill Road. Areas of the Cliffview water project are scheduled to start flowing the much-needed water at the end of September. Lincoln Road and portions of Fries Road extending into Grayson County will be completed in October.

The water line project is approximately 61,000 linear feet of 8-inch and 6-inch water line, a 100,000 gallon water storage tank and related improvements. This system will add approximately 200 customers to the Carroll PSA’s customer base. The total project cost is $2,244,968.

PSA Chairman Dr. Tom Littrell concluded by saying the Authority would host a turning on the tap ceremony Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Cliffview Church of God Fellowship Hall. Refreshments will be served at the symbolic ceremony.
