Watershed Management

Smoke testing is one of several assessments DeKalb Watershed Management uses to find and repair flaws in the sewer system. Using non-toxic smoke, cracks are tracked down and repaired in a day’s work, in accordance with DeKalb's Consent Decree. Check out smoke testing in action in the video below.



The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) was established in 1942. The department currently services over 5,000 miles of water and wastewater pipes in the county system.  Major facilities operated and maintained by the department include the Scott Candler Treatment Plant, Pole Bridge Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant, Snapfinger Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant and the John A. Walker Memorial Pumping Station.
