Almost every time he fills the tub, he said it looks like Lake Lanier.
Its disgusting, frustrating. It looks like Georgia red clay mixed with tap water. Which, without sampling it, I dont know whats in it, said Snow.
Snow showed Channel 2s Tom Regan the problem that he and many other residents at 905 Juniper St. have been dealing with for years.
The high-rise building features condos ranging from $200,000 to $1.5 million.
Snow has complained to Atlanta Watershed Management, along with the president of the building homeowner’s association. The HOA president told Regan that a water department worker suspected the problem could be traced to a century-old water main near the building.
Its partially clogged with sludge and accumulated material. I dont know if theyre planning to replace it, but I suspect that is the cause, said Snow.
Regan contacted a representative of Atlanta Watershed Management. She told him that the water department would analyze the murky water and, if necessary, flush water lines nearby the building and see if that corrects the problem.
In the meantime, the water department said the water is safe to drink.
Snow said he is sticking to filtered or bottled water. He said its annoying that he pays the water department more than $100 a month for murky looking water.
Its not a building problem. Its the citys problem and they need to fix it, Snow said.
