Tuesday Headlines: Water Main Failure Has 282 Apartments Without Water

282 apartments in DeKalb County, Georgia are still without water after a water main break disrupted service to residents on Saturday night, the latest in a series of water-related problems in the county. Residents can’t shower or draw drinking water from their taps after the failure of a 48-inch water main that served the complex.

In Alabama, sewage spills blamed on rains in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Fay were reported Monday in both Baldwin and Mobile counties.

A sewer line blockage in the Lula, Georgia Sunday afternoon caused more than 3,200 gallons of raw sewage to spill into a tributary of Hagen Creek, which feeds into the Chattahoochee River.

Some homes in Cameron Park, California were flooded early Tuesday when an underground water main broke. Water could be seen gushing up from the road before the Irrigation District could shut off the main.

Slowed by the summer rain, commuters in Juanita, Washington also had to contend with a water main break that shut down part of major road.
