If you notice a drop in water pressure or discolored water on March 6, it’s because the county continues to work on part of a 30 inch main on DeKalb Industrial Way and East Ponce de Leon Avenue.

The county has been working on the problem since last month.

“Crews have isolated a portion of a water main to repair a water main break which occurred earlier [last] month,” the county announced. “The repair is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 6, from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Water customers will be serviced by several feeder lines while the main is isolated. However, during this time, residents and businesses may experience no or low water pressure or brown water from service lines.

“Turning on the tap for a few minutes and flushing the lines should remedy color issues. Though unsightly, brown water is not a health hazard. Customers should report no service, low water pressure and other water issues by calling 770-270-6243.”
