DeKalb County Water Alert

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 ….

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.
