Notice of Untreated Sewage Discharge

GREENSBORO, NC (May 14, 2018) – The City of Greensboro had a discharge of approximately 1,800 gallons of untreated wastewater from our sewer main located at 1041 Battleground Avenue. The discharge occurred on May 13, 2018 for approximately 2 hours due to a pipe failure of a 8″ sewer main. The untreated wastewater entered North Buffalo, tributary of the Cape Fear River basin. The line was cleaned with a combo jet truck and one nearby hydrant was opened to flush the creek.

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