Untreated Domestic Wastewater Overflow Incident Description: Last night, City crews discovered a wastewater overflow at 2362 Tamarind Court, caused by a 24-inch gravity main obstructed with roots, rags, grease and other debris. The blockage was significant and difficult to clear. The overflow, which came up through two nearby manholes (2301 Hatten Smith Ln and 2362 Tamarind Court) ceased by 10 am through the use of bypass pumps, which serviced the main until the blockage was completely cleared. The overflow affected Hartsfield Village neighborhood and the Central Ditch stormwater system. Recovery efforts were made within the residential area and along the stormwater system. The affected residential areas have been cleaned up and santization is nearly complete. Affected property owners were notified via direct outreach and door hangers. Water quality sampling is being conducted. Recovery volumes are still being calculated and will be updated in written report.
