Legislative Update, Nancy Jester, DeKalb County District 1 County Commissioner – DeKalb County Water/Sewer is under a Federal Consent Decree for eight years and we are currently at year six. We spilled over 14 million gallons of sewage in 2017. We have a leaky system that allows ground water to infiltrate. Some of the 33 basins do not have a problem. Fats, oils and grease(FOG) are the biggest problem and the biggest contributor of FOG are multi family dwellings. They are working on a new ordinance that would require grease traps for multifamily communities. Nancy Jester is considering donating part of her salary increase to fire and police if allowed.
