Marietta, GA (CBS46) Flooding is a major concern in several areas of metro Atlanta, especially for people living along the Chattahoochee River.
To make matters worse, in southern Cobb County, a significant failure at the South Cobb Water Reclamation Facility on Industrial Boulevard is causing a sewage overflow.
Despite it all, officials are saying the drinking water is safe to drink.
A major pump failure at a water facility sent rainwater, creek water and untreated wastewater into Nickajack Creek. That's near the Chattahoochee River.
Cobb county is said to be installing replacement pumps, but the system is not up to full capacity. But again, the tap water is currently safe for drinking and other uses.
