Superior Ave Water Main & Sewer Projects

Katie Dorian Paden: Here's the presentation from DeKalb Co. from last week's community meeting on the Superior Ave water main and sanitary sewer projects. I have more scribbled notes in the margins of my hard copy from the meeting, so possibly I-- and others! chime in!-- can shed a little more light if folks have questions. I admit that my attention was biased toward the sewer work (which starts on our property) versus the water main (which starts further north on N Superior). Get ready for some big, long projects!

County failed to issue boil water advisory last summer

From wsb-tv: " .... DeKalb water officials made a serious error with a public health warning last summer. The head of the agency downplayed the scale of the risk, even as complaints poured in from all over the county. When water pressure drops too low, for any reason, there’s a risk the water will become contaminated. In this case from August 2013, that risk was system wide, affecting 700,000 people.
