Baldwin Schools return to in-person learning, boil advisory issued after water main break

The break impacts customers along Highway 49 and in the Allenwood Subdivision.

MACON, Ga. — Some people in Milledgeville are waking up under a boil order on Friday, but schools there are back to in-person classes.

On Thursday, City Manager Hank Griffeth said some people may have no water or low water pressure because a water main break is impacting customers along Highway 49 and in the Allenwood Subdivision.

The break is actually on Blandy road. It is now repaired, but the Balwdin County Water Department says anyone who lost water service or saw low pressure should boil water before consuming it. 

They plan on testing Friday to see if they can lift the order.

 A news release from School and Community Relations Coordinator Felicia Cummings with the Baldwin County School District says schools closed Thursday due to this break.

After spending a day under home instruction because of an impact on schools, students are returning to in-person learning Friday. 

The county school system says they are providing bottled water for students. 

Cummings says the break was a feeder line that provides water to most of the schools in this area.

"We will continue to monitor the situation," Cummings said in a release.
