[ARCHIVED] No Swim Advisory Remains in Effect

A no swimming advisory issued on May 29th remains in effect for the area of Ash Hollow Ln in Denver North Carolina due to a wastewater spill.


(LINCOLN COUNTY – 4218 Ash Hollow Ln, Denver, North Carolina)               

The Lincoln County Health Director issued a Swimming Advisory at 7:30 pm Friday, May 29, 2020 for a sewage spill at 4218 Ash Hollow Ln, Denver, North Carolina.  At this time, two consecutive samples indicating fecal coliform counts <200/ml at all sampling sites have not been obtained and the swimming advisory will remain in effect.

As a preventive measure, the Health Director is advising all residents and boaters that this area may be contaminated with fecal coliform.  Residents and lake users are advised not to swim or otherwise have bodily contact in that area. 

The KCWWTP will continue taking water samples and results will be forwarded to the county Public Works department who will notify the health department and public when it is clear to resume lake activities in this area. As a reminder, until at least two consecutive samples indicate fecal coliform counts <200/ml at all sampling sites, the swimming advisory will remain in effect.  This decision is based on state guidelines per the Mooresville Regional Office of the NC Division of Environmental Management.
