Boil Water Advisory Issued for DeKalb County

Cuisine - eau bouillante

A boil water advisory has been issued for all of DeKalb county. Severe thunderstorms Friday night caused power outages at the water treatment plant.

According to officials, the Scott Candler Water Treatment Plant lost power at 10:40pm and again later that night at 2:30am. This can cause public health risk as a number of systems dropped to dangerously low water levels.

The county says "In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all customers that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to "boil" all water prior to use for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby food."
