System Pressure Advisory: Boil Water Notice

Water consumers of the Town of Tryon will be experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to two line breaks. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.

Therefore, when water service is restored consumers are advised to boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.

Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.

Water customers are strongly urged to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.


January 17 – Due to road conditions expected on the morning of Tuesday, January 18th, the sanitation route will be done on Friday, January 21.  The Town Hall will open at 10AM Tuesday and the Board of Commissioners meeting will take place, beginning with work session at 6PM.


PRESS RELEASE – WASTEWATER DISCHARGE

The Town of Tryon had a discharge of untreated wastewater from a manhole located off Jervey Road from the S. Trade Street intersection (approximate coordinates: 35.199033, -82.235545) causing an overflow of approximately 6000 gallons.

The discharge occurred on December 20, 2021 and lasted for approximately sixty (60) minutes.  An estimated 3000 gallons of the untreated wastewater entered into Little Creek.


 

LEAF PICK-UP

The Town of Tryon has begun leaf vacuuming street by street, beginning in the area of Whitney and New Market.

To assist in this effort, make sure all leaf piles are unbagged and free of brush and foreign debris and placed at curbside. Do not pile the leaves in the street gutters where they will become wet and impossible to vacuum.

The time required to complete this task may be affected by the weather, as wet leaves cannot be effectively vacuumed, so please be patient.

The order in which individual streets will be cleared may also vary with the local conditions of the leaves and other factors. Once your street has been vacuumed, any further leaf debris must be bagged for pick-up.

During this time, we request that pick-up of items other than regular garbage be held until December 17th. This will allow crews time to collect these items before Christmas. To allow for efficient pick-up, please call 859-6655 to submit a work order for special item pick-up.

Leaf vacuuming will resume December 28th and continue until all areas have been covered. Bagged leaves will be picked up as soon as possible after we have covered all areas with the leaf vacuum.


LAND USE PLAN SURVEY

The Town of Tryon is seeking community input in its process of creating a new Land Use Plan — a document that acts as a road map to guide the town’s growth and development for years to come.

We’ve put together a survey to gather residents’ opinions on land use, community character, growth management, local economy, recreation, and more.

Feedback from the survey will help shape the Land Use Plan and the policies that will likely stem from it.

All members of the community are invited to complete the survey, which is available online at www.tryonsurvey.com.

Please make your voice heard and spread the word to your local friends and family!


Town Sewer Customers are reminded to not dispose of fats, oils or grease down the drain. When cooking fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they tend to collect and stick to household plumbing and sewer lines. Over time blockages occur that lead to sewer backups, sometimes causing sewage to overflow from plumbing fixtures or sewer system manholes.

Help keep our sewer lines functioning properly. Click here for more information and how to properly dispose of your fats, oils and grease.
