The Lincoln County Health Director issued a Swimming Advisory at 7:00 pm Wednesday, June 26, 2019 for a sewage spill at 8025 Island View Court, Denver, North Carolina, in the Westport Subdivision.
Approximately seventy-five gallons of untreated sewage may have leaked into an unnamed cove at 8025 Island View Court, Denver, North Carolina, which runs into Lake Norman in the Catawba River Basin. A wastewater spill occurred due to a broken sewage air relief valve on a sewer service line. The flow has been stopped and testing of the discharge site has commenced.
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
