Department of Watershed Management Hosts Community Open House

DECATUR, Ga. – The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management will host a community open house to announce new construction for the Honey Creek Pump Station and Force Main in the Stonecrest area. The event takes place on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 6 p.m., at the Stonecrest Library, 3123 Klondike Road, Lithonia.

The construction is a new phase of capital improvement projects 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 higher elevation to a lower elevation, increasing sewer capacity and reducing sanitary sewer overflows in the area. 

Construction will take place throughout 2017 and will require intermittent traffic detours in the area as work progresses. Notices about traffic flow will be posted, advising residents and motorists of construction work and traffic restrictions. Flaggers will be present during single-lane closures.

For more information on the project status, contact projectinfo@dekalbcountyga.gov or call 1-800-986-1108.
