The 8½-year consent decree calls for significant levels of sanitary sewer system inspection, assessment, rehabilitation and repair.

To date, DeKalb’s progress toward fulfilling the consent decree includes cleaning 150 miles of sewer, removing more than 5 tons of debris and completing 1,154 stream crossing inspections.

The consent decree update will be available live on “It’s In DeKalb’s” Facebook page and live-tweeted with the hashtag #DeKalbConsentDecree.

Citizens unable to attend the meeting can submit questions on “It’s in DeKalb’s” Facebook page or Twitter account, @ItsInDeKalb.

The update will be broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 23 for residents living in DeKalb County and livestreamed at www.dekalbcountyga.gov/dctv.
