'Gone with the Water' on Margaret Mitchell Drive

Posted: Updated:

It’s been more than a year since homeowners on Margaret Mitchell Drive in Buckhead witnessed their street wash away.

Four different leaks under the street named for Gone with the Wind’s famed author channeled a 1,000 foot tunnel under the street.  

Atlanta’s water and sewer department, Atlanta Watershed, fixed the leaks, but never made a permanent repair.  

Buckhead resident Danny Solomon said he filed a dozen complaints. When a water department employee showed up last month to make another temporary repair, Solomon asked if he could record the employee on his cellphone.  

In the recording, the employee admitted that someone at his department was “passing the buck.”  

See what happened when CBS46’s Harry Samler showed the video to city officials.
