The Sanders Road Pump Station serves several commercial developments, including Best Buy and Staples, in the eastern portion of the City of Cumming's Service Area and was built by the City of Cumming in 2007 for a cost of $883,000.
The Sanders Road Pump Station includes two 88-HP Flygt Model CP-3300 submersible pumps. The 8-inch force main serving the station connects to a parallel 6-inch and 12-inch force main at the intersection of Sanders Road and Buford Dam Road. Currently, wastewater is pumped through the 8-inch and 6-inch force main providing approximately 400 gpm of capacity. Ultimately, the pump station will be able to pump approximately 750 gpm using the 12-inch force main.
