Fulton County To Explain Water Project Tonight

Glen Abbey's clubhouse will host the public and staff with the county's water department as they update a water project that's been tearing up Alpharetta and Johns Creek roads.

Have you been wondering what's going on with all the water pipes being laid along Kimball Bridge Road, and now on Westside Parkway and Thompson Street in Alpharetta? Thursday night is your chance to get answers.

The Fulton County Department of Water Resources invites residents to a  public meeting on Thursday, May 17, from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. Staff will provide residents with an update regarding the Alpharetta Water Transmission Main capital improvement project.  

The meeting will be held in the Clubhouse of the Glen Abbey Subdivision, located at 3600 Grey Abbey Drive in Alpharetta.

The Alpharetta Water Transmission Main involves the installation of approximately 7 miles of water mains and ancillaries in the cities of Alpharetta and Johns Creek. The new transmission pipeline will begin at the intersection of Jones Bridge Road and Buice Road, and will end at Mayfield Road in downtown Alpharetta. 

The county says this project is the most significant of a series of projects staff identified to improve the water system supply and pressure in North Fulton County and specifically, to bring a major transmission to feed the northwestern portion of the County.

Construction on the total transmission pipeline will be installed in sections.  Currently the section on Kimball Bridge Road, between Big Creek and Spruell Circle, is under construction and is scheduled to be completed by November 2012. Construction on other sections of the project is slated for 2013. 

Fulton County staff will be on hand to discuss the project details and to address any concerns posed by the public. 

For more information about the project, email Earl Burrell or call him at 404-612-7462.
