Water customers in the Tucker/Northlake area may notice a drop in water pressure on Feb. 24. The drop may be as much as 50 percent in some areas but DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) officials say not to worry. The situation is temporary. The DWM has scheduled a preliminary test of a 48-inch transmission water main that runs along Henderson Mill Road. The test is being conducted in preparation for repairs for the more than 40-year-old pipe. Testing will begin at 6 p.m.

In the event that customers experience a water pressure drop of more than 50 percent during the test, they should contact DeKalb Watershed at 770-270-6243 or DeKalbWaterOPS@DeKalbCountyga.gov, as this would indicate that an unexpected circumstance has occurred and the preliminary test would be stopped.

Customers outside of the Tucker and Northlake areas also may experience a slight drop in pressure. While these customers will be directly served via one or more other transmission mains, any of these customers that experience more than a 25 percent drop in pressure should contact DeKalb Watershed at 770-270-6243 or DeKalbWaterOPS@DeKalbCountyga.gov, and the preliminary test would be stopped.

Additionally, motorists may experience traffic delays during the testing.

Upon successful completion of the preliminary testing, a repair will be planned within two to three weeks.
