Updated:CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Charlotte city leaders approved spending millions of dollars to clear toxic chemicals that were illegally dumped into the city's water system.
Utility workers said it’s going to cost $3.2 million to dispose nearly 46,000 tons of sludge contaminated with PCBs.
In February, police said someone dumped the toxic chemical into a storm drain, contaminating two water treatment plants.
While clean-up continues, city officials are reminding people their water is safe.
