Tennessee American Water Co. starts upgrades

Tennessee American Water Co. will replace 23 large diameter valves across its Chattanooga service territory over the next five months to help improve water service and reliability, company President Deron Allen said.

The $1 million upgrade is part of $127 million in local water infrastructure improvements made by the privately owned water system over the past 16 years.

"These valve replacements will help improve water quality and system reliability, increase water pressure in our service areas, and help maintain adequate water flows throughout our system," Allen said.
