DeKalb seeking input for river clean-up

Residents who want to help direct DeKalb County’s clean-up efforts of the South River and two other creeks can offer their input during three upcoming meetings.

The trash and debris removal from the river, Snapfinger Creek and the South Fork of Peachtree Creek are all being done as part of the federal consent decree requiring DeKalb to stop its near-daily sewer spills and improve water quality.

The meetings are designed to gather public comment on the planned clean-ups.

The first meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Toco Hills Library, with a focus on the South Fork Peachtree Creek Basis.

A second meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. March 19 at the Wesley Chapel Library, with a focus on the Snapfinger Creek basin.

The final meeting, at 6:30 p.m. March 20 at Flat Shoals Library, will focus on the South River basin.
