On 6/20/2022 during a routine pump station check Paulding County Sewer Collections discovered that the bypass pump at the Due West sewer pumping station was not operating properly. The vendor dispatched a pump tech to the site. The bypass pump would not prime, the vendor left to get parts to make the pump. Beginning at 10:30 a.m. a sewer overflow began. Pump trucks were mobilized to minimize the effect of the overflow. The vendor repaired the pump and the overflow stopped at 1:30 p.m.  An estimated total of 7200 gallons of sewage overflowed from the manhole onto the ground and into Possum Creek. Pump trucks pumped 2500 gallons of the overflow out of a small tributary where the overflow occurred. Signs were placed at the station to alert the public of the overflow location and lime was applied stabilize the area.
