County Issues Operation Permit for Rafting Channels at USNWC


Mecklenburg CountyMecklenburg County has completed its inspection of the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) and has issued an Operation Permit allowing the facility to reopen its recreational rafting channels.

After the channels were drained, cleaned and refilled, County staff from Environmental Health monitored and tested the water on a regular basis to ensure chlorine levels remained stable.

The Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners added additional testing, inspections, and a requirement that the USNWC obtain an annual County operating permit to ensure water quality.

Environmental Health officials will be available at the Hal Marshal Center today at 2 p.m. to answer questions.
