Tropical Storm Claudette Flooding Causes Over One Million Dollars in Damages to Water Systems in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Early estimates from Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox indicate the city sustained over one million dollars in damage to its water treatment systems.
Maddox posted an update to social media Monday, detailing the status of damages to the City of Tuscaloosa's water treatment system.
"Cost of ALL the repairs will likely be in a the range of $1 million to $2 million (this estimate will need to defined as work continues on the emergency repairs)," Maddox wrote.
A Conserve Water Order is still in effect for those south of the Black Warrior River.
"Conservation order is still needed with repairs in the initial stages and additional rainfall will increase chances for additional slope failures," Maddox added.
Maddox also said crews are working with residents who may face service issues while crews work to make necessary repairs.
