SPRING HILL, Tenn. (WKRN) — Spring Hill water customers are being asked by the city to stop all non-essential water usage, including irrigation activities, until further notice.
The advisory comes as a result of “unforeseen mechanical issues” with the municipal and regional water systems, which require “immediate attention and maintenance,” the city announced Monday.

“We understand the importance of maintaining lawns and gardens, and the City is taking proactive steps to ensure the swift resolution of these mechanical issues,” the announcement read. “By temporarily halting irrigation, we can conserve water resources and expedite the repair process, minimizing the likelihood of additional restrictions to our users.”
The city apologized for any inconvenience the temporary suspension may cause, saying they will provide updates or changes regarding the irrigation advisory as new information becomes available.
An update later came in the afternoon, stating the city and Columbia Power and Water Systems (CPWS) were collaborating to correct the problems, which were caused by mechanical issues located within the CPWS system.
“These challenges have necessitated coordinated efforts between the City and CPWS to manage and mitigate the impact on our water distribution system,” the city said in the Monday afternoon update.
City officials have been in “constant communication” with CPWS in order to ensure the situation is addressed promptly, the city said.
“We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time and thank you for your continued support as we work diligently to resolve the issue and ensure the uninterrupted delivery of water services to our beloved community,” the city said.
