CHARLOTTE - According to a release from Mecklenburg County, a no swimming advisory was issued Tuesday for a portion of Lake Wylie in Charlotte.
The advisory was issued after approximately 800 gallons of sewage from a broken sewer line discharged into a cove on Lake Wylie in the Riverpointe development on Tuesday.
The discharge was stopped by Utilities, Inc., which is a private utility company responsibly for the sewer service in the development.
Water samples will be collected in the cove by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services staff.
Rusty Rozzelle, the program manager for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services’ Water Quality, said the advisories are standard procedure.
