Work continues at the refurbishment of the McCaysville Water Plant. We are experiencing unexpected problems. Our water storage is not recovering as quickly as we would have liked, mainly due to backwashing of the newly installed filter media. We are asking for renewed Water Conservation Efforts by everyone to allow us to complete our project while furnishing clean, safe water to our citizens and businesses.
Those waiting on snow may be disappointed however conditions did create some icy patches. Fannin County Emergency Management Agency shared with us how ice can create a dangerous situation. This incident occurred this morning on Highway 60 South on Wilscot in Fannin County. FYN encourages everyone to proceed cautiously when traveling in areas that may have icy patches.
