Cornelius, NC – A “No Swimming” advisory was lifted today for a cove on Lake Norman.

The “No Swimming” advisory was issued on July 12. 2021 after an estimated 200 gallons of untreated sewage was discharged from a residence on Paradise Cove Court in Cornelius to a cove on Lake Norman.

The discharge originated from a pipe damaged by a private contractor. The pipe has been repaired and the discharge discontinued.

Water samples collected by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services staff reveal that bacteria counts are within safe limits; therefore, the "No Swimming" advisory has been lifted.
