Project: Scott Boulevard-Peavine Creek Watershed Improvement Project Phase II

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management will begin the “Scott Boulevard-Peavine Creek Watershed Improvement Project Phase II” in the upcoming months. A community meeting regarding this project was held on Wednesday, September 3, 2008, at 7 pm at the Manuel J. Maloof Auditorium located at 1300 Commerce Drive, Decatur, GA 30030.

In the second phase of the project, the County’s contractor, Portland Utilities, will complete upgrades to the sewer main and pipes along Peavine Creek near Scott Boulevard, increasing the capacity of the system to prevent Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO). Through traditional open trench construction, the existing ten (10”) inch line will be upgraded to a sixteen (16”) inch sewer line to increase its sewer capacity and prevent further SSOs in the region. Ultimately, this work will result in better protection of residents and the environment.

Commissioners Jeff Rader and Kathie Gannon, in conjunction with the DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management, hosted the September 4th community meeting, where the Department and contractor representatives answered questions, addressed concerns, and provided detailed information on the project. The Scott Boulevard-Peavine Creek Watershed Improvement Project Phase II will create a better quality of life for DeKalb County residents and increase the long-term safety, reliability, and environmental integrity of the County’s sewer and water system.

The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management and Portland Utilities will make every effort to minimize disturbance to citizens’ property and daily activities during the process.
