DeKalb County, GA — DeKalb County has fixed water main break at Hammond Drive in Dunwoody, and on Wednesday afternoon lifted a boil water advisory affecting many county residents.
The county has fixed 18 out of the 19 reported main breaks.
Here’s the full announcement about the completion of the Hammond Drive project:
Department of Watershed Management (DWM) crews have completed repairs on an 8-inch water main break at or near 1224 Hammond Drive.
As of approximately 2:30a.m., the water main had been repaired and the water system was being pressurized.
Water has been restored to the area and customers who had been experiencing low to no water pressure should see increasing pressure in the system.
For more information, contact the DeKalb County Watershed Department at 770-270-6243.

The only other water main that needs to be done is on East Ponce de Leon, Scottdale. That assumes, of course, that there aren’t any other water main breaks the county doesn’t know about. The number of main breaks has grown steadily since Monday, when the county began to acknowledge problems causing the low water pressure many residents noticed on Christmas Day.
