The Latest: Atlanta Residents Still Without Water as Crews Continue Working on Water Main Breaks

🚨 The Gist: Despite crews working around the clock to repair multiple water main breaks, many Atlanta residents and businesses are still without water service, causing widespread disruptions and frustration.

🔧 Repair Progress:

  • The water main break near Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and J.P. Brawley Drive has been repaired, but crews are slowly pressurizing the system to prevent further damage and check for leaks.
  • Work continues on the second break at 11th Street and West Peachtree Street NW, where a valve problem is hindering progress.
  • There is still no definitive timeline on when the repairs will be complete, when water service will be restored, or when the boil water advisory will be lifted.

⚠️ Boil Water Advisory Continues: The boil water advisory remains in effect for affected areas until the Department of Watershed Management receives clearance to lift it following sampling protocols.

💧 Conserving Water: Residents are urged to restrict water usage to essential needs, allowing the system to rebuild pressure and prevent further issues.
