DeKalb County trying to locate the source of a water main break on LaVista Road in Tucker.

The incident occurred Wednesday morning, May 2, and caused some confusion after city officials mistakenly told everyone a boil water advisory was in effect. That information was later corrected.

“DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management crews are working to locate a water main break along Lavista Road near Henderson Road in Tucker,” the county reported. “Crews have spent the morning trying to determine which of two nearby water mains, a 16-inch and a 10-inch, has been compromised. After the 10-inch main was isolated, crews narrowed their search for the break to the 16-inch main. Once the break in the 16-inch main has been located, repairs can begin. Currently, there is no estimated time for repairs to be completed.”

Some residents in the area are experiencing water pressure issues as a result of the break.

The city of Tucker closed its recreation center this morning but it has since been reopened.

“After experiencing a reduction in water pressure due to a water main break this morning along Lavista Road, Tucker Recreation Center is open for the day,” the city reported. “Two westbound lanes of Lavista Road between Henderson and Midvale Roads are closed as DeKalb Watershed crews try and fix the water main issue. Please try to avoid the area until further notice.”
