The Cobb County Water System reported an estimated 3,280 gallon wastewater sewer overflow occurred July 18.

The overflow, resulting from a structural problem caused by a sinkhole, occurred at 1901 McCollum Parkway in Kennesaw and discharged into a tributary of Noonday Creek.

The Water System was notified of the overflow at 2:30 p.m. and the overflow was stopped at 5:15 p.m.

Water System employees upon arrival found a sinkhole with sewage escaping from a pipe into the nearby waterway. Workers replaced six feet of an 8-inch clay main with 8-inch PVC pipe.

On June 28, the system reported a wastewater sewer overflow that resulted in an estimated 1,690 gallon sewage overflow into a tributary of Concord Creek in Smyrna.
