Boil water advisory lifted in Ga. city where ‘The Walking Dead’ is filmed 

A boil water advisory has been lifted in Senoia, the small city in Coweta County where much of “The Walking Dead” is filmed.

The boil water notice was issued Thursday after a valve blew as crews worked near Main Street on a construction site, according to Channel 2 Action News.

That caused water pressure to drop in the city.


While the water main was fixed, and the system was flushed by midnight Thursday, a 48-hour boil water advisory was put in place as a precaution, Channel 2 reported. Service returned to normal by 8:30 p.m. Saturday, police said in a Facebook post.

“The water quality testing sample submitted has confirmed that tap water meets all regulatory standards and is safe for human consumption,” according to the post.

Senoia Coffee and Cafe had to cancel Friday night dinner plans, Channel 2 reported. Servers were using paper plates, plastic utensils and bottled water during the Friday lunch hour.

A popular tourist destination, Senoia is about 35 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta. It doubles as the town of Woodbury, a haven for escapees from zombie-infested Atlanta in “The Walking Dead,” the hit show on AMC.
