County water supply safe for consumption


DeKalb County’s boil water advisory for the city of Dunwoody has been lifted. Authorities have confirmed that the water supply in all areas of the county is safe for consumption without boiling.

“DeKalb County would like to thank our residents, business owners and visitors for their patience and cooperation during the boil water advisory,” said DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond. “Thanks to the hard work of DeKalb County employees and efforts of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, the county’s water system has returned to normal.”

The countywide boil water advisory, which began Saturday morning, has been canceled after the Georgia Environmental Protection Division reviewed and analyzed a series of samples and authorized the advisory to be lifted.

 Out of an abundance of caution, the advisory was issued after heavy thunderstorms affecting Scott Candler Water Treatment Plant in north DeKalb County led to power outages overnight Sept. 13, and early Sept. 14.

DeKalb County residents are encouraged to sign up to receive weather and emergency notification alerts from CodeRED.

CodeRED distributes alerts via phone, text, and email in a variety of situations including boil water notices, gas leaks, evacuation notices, police activity, fire emergencies, and more. To sign up, visit
