DeKalb County Moves Forward With Sewer Cleanup

DeKalb County Watershed Management crews are cleaning and repairing 53 miles of main sewer lines, marking the first time the maintenance work has been undertaken in a half-century.

Local business leaders say cleared sewer lines will not only help the environment, but also the economy.
