City approves funds to clear toxic chemicals from water



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.
