Notice of Untreated Sewage Discharge

GREENSBORO, NC (July 12, 2017) – The City of Greensboro had a discharge of approximately 1,000 gallons of untreated wastewater from our sewer main located at 1200 North Elm Street. The discharge occurred on July 11 for approximately four (4) hours due to a contractor damaging a 12″ diameter sewer main. The untreated wastewater entered North Buffalo Creek, a tributary of the Cape Fear River basin. The sewer main was permanently repaired to prevent further discharge. A Jet/Vac truck was used to clean up the discharged sewer from the affected area.

This notice was issued in compliance with North Carolina General Statutes Article 21, Chapter 143-215.1C.
