If you notice a drop in water pressure over the weekend, it’s because the county is cutting service to part of a 30 inch main on DeKalb Industrial Way and East Ponce de Leon Avenue.

The county is fixing a break that occurred earlier in the month. The service to the line will be cut around noon on Feb. 23, the county says. The county will drain the main and start repairs on Monday.

“No customers are expected lose service,” the announcement from the county says. “Water customers will be serviced by several feeder lines while the main is isolated. During this time, residents and businesses may experience 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.”

Anyone who would like to report water pressure issues can call 770-270-6243.
