UPDATED: Boil Water Advisory Now Lifted

Power outage on Thursday continued problem into Friday and left parts of East Atlanta, Reynoldstown, Kirkwood and East Lake under a boiled water advisory for most of the day Friday.

UPDATED: The Atlanta Dept. of Watershed Management lifted the boiled water advisory shortly after 8:15 p.m. June 29.

Original Posting: The Atlanta Dept. of Watershed Mangement's water advisory stemming from a power failure remains in effect until further notice.

The affected areas include parts of Reynoldstown, East Lake, Kirkwood and East Atlanta:

  • Streets between I-20 to the north and Glenwood Avenue to the south and Haas Avenue to the east and Moreland Avenue to the west.
  • Streets between Mauldin Street to the north and Memorial Drive to the south and Stovall Street to the east and Holtzclaw Street to the west.
