Graysville gets a new water line
Posted: January 27, 2015

It is big news in the small community of Graysville when you see heavy equipment, trucks and workers digging a new ditch. Graysville is a registered historical township and one of the oldest communities in Catoosa County. It even has a township council, and at one time a manufacturing company, a depot and jail. The Catoosa Utility District Authority approved and authorized the construction of a new water line for this area a while back and it is now beginning to take shape. Ronnie Lockhart, owner of Lockhart Trenching and Boring of Rock Island, Tenn., and his crew are putting in a 20-inch welded pipe, which will serve as a sleeve for the new 12-inch-high tech water line. Their job is to get the sleeve pipe under any road surfaces and keep the disturbance of traffic to a minimum. Once the new lines are in place, the old line will be abandoned. The old line was beginning to give problems and the new one will save money in the long run. All of the work is being supervised by Eslinger Construction and Brown Construction, both local businesses. (Article and photos submitted by Graysville resident Dan Phillips. “As a resident of Graysville, I am glad to see the improvement to our community,” Phillips said. “Hopefully a new sewer system will be next.”)
