Department of Watershed Management to Host Community Meeting on Honey Creek Pump Station

DECATUR, Ga. – The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) will host the second of a series of open house community meetings to provide construction updates for the Honey Creek Pump Station and Force Main Improvements project. The meeting will take place Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 6 p.m., at Stonecrest Library, 3123 Klondike Road, Lithonia.

The construction is a part of the capital improvement program under the federal consent decree. The sanitary sewer collection system in the Stonecrest and Lithonia areas is designed to move wastewater through a sewer pipe from a lower elevation to a higher elevation, increasing sewer capacity and reducing sanitary sewer overflows.

Construction over the next year of the project will require rerouted traffic in the area. Notices about traffic flow will be posted to advise residents and motorists of construction work and traffic restrictions. Flaggers will be present during single-lane closures.  

DWM representatives and project contractors, engineers and designers will be on hand to share information about the Honey Creek Pump Station and Force Main project.  The open house is free and members of the community are encouraged to attend.
