Atlanta inspecting, cleaning sewers at city park

The city of Atlanta’s department of watershed management has started inspecting and cleaning Peachtree Creek sewers at Atlanta Memorial Park. Work includes removing debris that could impact sewer capacity.

The city said the project is expected to be complete by the end of September, and it should not impact the park, which will remain open to the public.

The first phase involves the inspection and cleaning of twin 72-inch diameter trunk relief sewers within the park. Inspection and cleaning of a 90-inch diameter sewer, which goes from Northside Drive to Howell Mill Road, happens during the second phase.

The project is part of the department’s effort to address the area’s flooding.
