Swimming Advisory Lifted
'No Swimming' Advisory Lifted for Portion of Lake Wylie
10/14/2010
The NO SWIMMING advisory that was issued on October 12, 2010 for a portion of Lake Wylie has been lifted. 

The advisory was issued after an unknown amount of sewage discharged from a sanitary sewer manhole near 8746 Little Brim Lane, flowed into a nearby stream and then into Paw Creek Cove on Lake Wylie. The sewage discharge was discovered during the morning of October 12.

The overflow was caused by a grease blockage in the sanitary sewer line. Within a few hours, the problem was repaired and the discharge stopped. The sewer line is privately owned and maintained by West Bloomfield Acres Mobile Home Park.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services staff has been collecting water samples from the lake since the spill was discovered. Laboratory results of those samples now indicate that levels of fecal coliform bacteria are below 200-colonies/100 ml, which is the level determined to be safe for swimming.
