On 11/01/2023, Paulding County staff received a call from a resident. After arriving on the site at 5:00 p.m., crews examined the sanitary sewer lines and found a manhole overflowing. The main was found to be clogged and crews began removing debris and rocks from the manhole to clear the blockage. The sanitary sewer main was cleaned and flushed by jetting the line. At 8:19 p.m. the sanitary sewer main was restored to full service eliminating the overflow. The flow escaping the manhole was estimated at 25 gpm for 199 minutes totaling 4,975 gallons which spilled onto the ground leading to a tributary to Mill Creek. The site was raked of debris, lime was applied to the affected area and signs were posted.
