Water has been fully restored to all Davidson County residents affected by the water shortage that started a week ago, except for four customers who Metro Water Services has not been able to contact, according to a 2 p.m. press release from the utility.

Officials have said that they need to contact residents individually before restoring services to make sure that none of their faucets were left on and unattended.

“I realize that the past week has been a trying time for those impacted by the extended service interruption and I appreciate your patience and understanding,” Metro Water Services Director Scott Potter said.

The utility was working to restore water to the Northumberland system and began reconnecting people there, the last of the remaining customers without water, last night. The press release said that the majority of the connections were completed overnight.

"As of 2 p.m. today, all connections have been completed with the exception of four customers who we have been unable to contact after several visits to their homes and multiple phone calls," said Metro Water Services spokesperson Sonia Harvat. "Door hangers and messages have been left for these customers asking them to advise us of their availability and scheduling preference for reconnection."
