Green Forrest Water Line Replacement Project Begins May 1

Dekalb County

Construction to install new water line system

Efforts to improve water service capacity throughout DeKalb County continue on Monday, May 1, with the launch of the Green Forrest Water Line Replacement Project. 

Crews will replace 20,200 linear feet of crumbling water lines with new 8-inch-diameter and 12-inch-diameter ductile-iron water lines along Green Forrest. This line repair project is expected to last approximately 10 months (May 2023 to February 2024), barring any weather delays. 

Normal construction hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding major holidays. An increase in construction-related noise and traffic during work hours should be expected.
