Mayor Kasim Reed Statement on Boil Water Advisory for City of Atlanta Residents and Businesses

ATLANTA – “Early this morning, the Department of Watershed Management experienced a power interruption to a pump station at the Hemphill Water Treatment Plant. As a result, portions of the water system served by this plant experienced a water outage or low water pressure.

Although the operation of the pumps was quickly restored and system pressures returned to normal, the City issued a Boil Water Advisory out of an abundance of caution and in case of any impacts to water quality. The City has conducted water quality testing and expects to receive results within the next 24 hours. The Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the City receives approval to lift the advisory from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.”
