Cornelius, NC – A
NO SWIMMING advisory was lifted today for a cove on Lake Cornelius.
The “No Swimming” advisory was issued on July 9, 2022 after an estimated 515 gallons of sewage spilled into Lake Cornelius. The spill was caused by debris clogging a pump resulting in an overflow from the sewer collection system. The discharge has been stopped by Charlotte Water staff.
On July 14, 2022, laboratory results were received for water samples collected by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services’ staff revealing that bacteria counts are within safe limits; therefore, the
NO SWIMMING advisory has been lifted.
