Dekalb County (DC) Water Alert … I just got off the phone with a DC Watershed Management spokesperson. You have probably already received a “robo call” from DC Watershed Management concerning the water consumption alert. According to the spokesperson I talked to she affirmed what the robo call message stated … as a precaution everyone in DC should bring all water they are going to use for any type of human consumption (drinking, cooking , baking, etc.) to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to use for consumption. This precautionary alert is in effect until further notice. Currently there is not a timeline as to when the water alert will be lifted. I was told we will be notified by a robo call when the DC precautionary water alert has been lifted or you can go on line to DC Watershed Management at …. www.dekalbwatershed.com/
The spokesperson said that the water is safe for showering, bathing, etc … just not for internal human consumption.
I hope the above information helps answer some of the question you may have.
