DECATUR, Ga. – Earlier this morning, DeKalb Watershed crews isolated the break in the 48-inch water main near Buford Highway and pressure is slowly being restored throughout the county. Despite restoration, DeKalb County Watershed customers are still under a boil water advisory.

In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all customers that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food. The water should be boiled for at least one minute after reaching a rolling boil. Customers should continue to boil their water until they are notified that the water system has been restored to full operation, and that the microbiological quality of the water in the distribution system is safe for human consumption.
