Dispute Over Sewage Upgrades in Oconee County at Center of Pinewood Estates Mobile Home Controversy

A sewage pump station is playing a key role in a controversy that threatens to cut off water and sewage services to residents of Pinewood Estates South mobile home park.

A sewage pump station tucked behind a shopping center on Epps Bridge Parkway is playing a key role in a controversy that threatens to cut off water and sewage services to residents of Pinewood Estates South mobile home park in Oconee County.

The pump, or lift, station, doesn’t even serve the residents of the mobile home park, though it lies between the shopping center and the park.

The lift station was built in 2003 on land that had been owned by Lindsay Greeson, who, at that time, also owned the mobile home park.

In what Oconee County Attorney Daniel Haygood called a “win-win for everybody,” the county was able to obtain a lift station on the land to serve the shopping center.

In exchange, the county agreed to allow the mobile home park to tie into a separate sewage line that runs along the edge of its property.

The actual details of that agreement are now at the center of a lawsuit Oconee County has filed against Georgia General Kipling Land LLC, the current owner of Pinewood Estates.
