Resident says city slow to respond to water leak

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Atlanta residents say they are fed up with seeing the city's drinking water running down streets non-stop. They're reporting water leaks that are, in some cases, weeks old.

Some citizens said that they have received a nonchalant response to complaints of leaks.

Arthur Graves said that he reported a leak in Buckhead but got frustrated with the customer service. He said he made the call in September, but didn't see a response for weeks.

City water officials confirmed that they received a complained from Graves on September 21. They said a crew investigated the leak this week, but they ran into a problem. The leak will take further investigation.  

On Monday, FOX 5's Morse Diggs reported about another leak that had gone unattended for weeks in Buckhead.
