Atlanta Councilmember Alex Wan's office has sent notification to area leadership that the Sewage Capacity Relief Project Meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 30th has been cancelled.
The Department of Watershed Management explained, "Due to issues that have to be addressed with our internal stakeholders, the public meeting on the Peachtree Creek Capacity Relief scheduled for May 30th has been postponed. The meeting will be rescheduled in the coming weeks and we apologize for the inconvenience."
The City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management is planning on building an overflow sewage capacity system.
Two tanks, between 10-12 million gallons and anywhere between 15-30 feet above ground will be put at 2061 Lidell Dr NE (Right near the Barking Hound Village). In the event of overcapacity in the main trunk, a tunneled pipe would carry diluted sewage overflow via active pumping to two above ground tanks on the Lidell property, and as capacity in the main trunk dissipated, would then release the overflow back into the main trunk via gravity flow.
