No Swimming Advisory Lifted For Portion of Nance Cove on Mountain Island Lake
5/12/2014
The NO SWIMMING advisory which was issued on May 7, 2014 for a portion of Mountain Island Lake in Charlotte has been lifted today. 

The “no swimming” advisory was issued after approximately 5,500 gallons of sewage from an overflowing sanitary sewer manhole discharged into a tributary of Nance Cove on Mountain Island Lake during the afternoon of May 6, 2014 (see attached map). The discharge was stopped by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department after being reported.
 
Water samples collected in the lake by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services in the affected area show bacteria levels are within safe ranges.
