What is with all these recent sewer overflows in Cobb County?

Nothing like this has happened in years and yet three overflows of raw sewage have occurred in the past few weeks…Austell, Powder Springs, East Cobb…maybe many other locations.

The Cobb County Water Department have been positioned at the manhole cover across the street from me every week for about 3 weeks trying to dislodge a clogged line…

Do we have citizens or immigrants who don’t understand sewage systems, stupid tenants, home owners who are flushing oils and greases down in the sewers now which tend to clog the lines, etc,?

All I can say is – people are more ignroant now than ever before after all we spent on the US educational system!

Ignorance is plentiful!
