FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brookhaven, GA, Oct. 6, 2017 – The City of Brookhaven’s Public Works department will host its first public meeting on the North Fork Peachtree Creek Watershed Improvement Plan on Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. at the Latin American Association, 2750 Buford Highway.
The City Council authorized a watershed improvement study in April 2017 that will identify projects to improve water quality in the North Fork Peachtree Creek. The project will coordinate with neighboring jurisdictions within the watershed, and follow the City’s Peachtree Creek Greenway Plan.
“We encourage the public to participate in this public meeting,” said Public Works Director Hari Karikaran. “This watershed has tremendous impact on the quality of life for Brookhaven residents.”
The study will investigate contamination in the creek and identify projects that would improve the water quality as well as alleviate flooding.
The North Fork Peachtree Creek Watershed originates in southern Gwinnett County and flows through unincorporated DeKalb, Chamblee, Doraville and Brookhaven.
