Reindeer Drive Water Line Replacement Project Begins May 11

Dekalb County

Construction to install new water line system

Efforts to improve water service capacity throughout DeKalb County continue Monday, May 9, with the launch of the Reindeer Drive Water Line Replacement Project. Crews will replace 22,000 linear feet of crumbling water lines with new six-, eight- and 16-inch-diameter ductile-iron water lines along Reindeer Drive. This line repair project is expected to last approximately 12 months (May 2022 to April 2023), 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.
