ATLANTA – On July 20, the Department of Watershed Management began conducting inspections and cleaning the Peachtree Creek sewers at Atlanta Memorial Park. Crews will perform sewer maintenance by removing debris that may impact sewer capacity.
“We have made a commitment to nearby residents to address the flooding plaguing this area,” says Commissioner Kishia L. Powell. “This work is the first step to ensure the sustainability of the sewer infrastructure within Peachtree Creek and develop long-term solutions.”
During the first phase, crews will inspect and clean twin 72-inch diameter trunk relief sewers that are located within the park. In the second phase, crews will inspect and clean a 90-inch diameter sewer extending from Northside Drive to Howell Mill Road. All work is expected to be completed by December 2017.
The project should not impact the park, which will remain open to the public.
