ATLANTA – Watershed Management crews are repairing a 20-inch water main at 2800 Springdale Road SW, affecting service to approximately 780 residents including the Crestview Health and Rehabilitation Center and the Fox Glove Nursing Home. Impacted customers have been notified, and water has been delivered. However, in an abundance of caution, a boil-water advisory is in effect for Springdale Road SW between Cleveland Avenue SW and Cofield Drive SW. Affected customers should boil water for one minute past a rolling boil before using it for cooking, drinking or brushing teeth. Infants, the elderly and those with immune deficiencies should be particularly careful. If you experienced a loss of water at your address but your address is not within the area described, you may want to follow these precautions. The Department of Watershed Management will flush the system as a precaution and sample the affected zones to affirm that there is no contamination in the system, as well as investigate the cause of the break. This advisory is in effect until further notice. Boil-Water Advisory Issued for South Atlanta

Drought conditions across Atlanta and most of Georgia have worsened, and Thursday November 17th 52 counties have moved from Level 1 to Level 2 Response, requiring outdoor water use restrictions. In the City of Atlanta, outdoor landscape watering is only allowed two days a week, determined by odd- and even-numbered addresses. Even-numbered addresses and properties without numbered addresses may water on Wednesday and Saturday between 4 p.m. and 10 a.m. Odd-numbered addresses may water Thursday and Sunday between 4 p.m. and 10 a.m. Even on allowable days, it’s encouraged that watering be limited to when plants are showing stress.
