Marietta Water will begin a major water main replacement in January of 2022, and is holding a meeting with the community to inform the public about the project, road closures, and other aspects Marietta residents are likely to be interested in.

Here’s the text of the announcement from the city’s web page:

MARIETTA – The City of Marietta will hold a Pre-Construction Community Information Meeting for a vital water main replacement project on the Marietta Square on Waverly Way and Powder Springs Street on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at 6:30pm in the City Council Chambers located in City Hall at 205 Lawrence Street, Marietta, GA 30060.

Marietta Water expects to begin construction on the project in January 2022. Information about the project will be provided at this meeting, including anticipated road closures, duration of the project, and safety measures. This will be the best opportunity for public questions and feedback before the project begins. Marietta Water will make every effort to minimize impacts this project may present.

The meeting will be live streamed on the City of Marietta Facebook page where you will be able to see the presentation and submit comments or questions.
