Atlanta Remains Under State Of Emergency Amid Ongoing Water Troubles

Atlanta remains under a state of emergency Monday as it battles disruptions to its water service that began last week, leaving a swath of a major city under boil-water advisories and highlighting the pervasiveness of problems caused by America’s aging infrastructure.

“We are currently coordinating with the US Army Corps of Engineers. We have sought their assistance because they have the most experience in handling a crisis like this,” Mayor Andre Dickens announced in a statement Monday. “They will help us develop a plan to assess and evaluate our aging infrastructure.”
