Once testing is done the 48 inch main should be repaired early next month.

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management will test a vital water main next week. The county has scheduled a preliminary test of a 48-inch transmission water main which runs along Henderson Mill Road. The test is being conducted in preparation for pending repairs for the more than 40-year-old pipe. Preliminary work on the main is scheduled to beginning at 6 p.m. Friday Feb. 24. Motorists should avoid the area.

During the test customers in the Tucker and Northlake areas may notice a temporary drop in water pressure, as much as 50 percent in some locations. Customers outside of the Tucker and Northlake areas also may experience a slight drop in pressure. Upon successful completion of the preliminary testing, a repair will be planned within two to three weeks.
