DWM officials said neighbors in South Fulton, Union City, Palmetto and Fairburn must restrict their water usage while they work on repairs.

They’re encouraging everyone who experienced a water outage or low water pressure to use bottled water for drinking, cooking, preparing baby food and brushing teeth.


Otherwise, you should boil other water for a minute before drinking or using it.

There is not currently an estimated time for the boil water advisory to be lifted.
