DeKalb Crews Work to Contain Sewer Main Break

Dekalb County

DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) crews have located a 24-inch-diameter sewer main break off Bouldercrest Road near Interstate 285. 

This break, located in an isolated, wooded area with no public access, was found after crews performing routine stream monitoring detected elevated levels of fecal coliform and began an investigation. 

Contractors are mobilizing to set up a bypass pump to stop the sewer spill at this time. 

DWM is also making plans for a permanent repair to the damaged main.
