FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
House Bill 1160, which the General Assembly enacted in July 1999, requires those municipalities, animal operations, industries and others who operate waste handling systems issue news releases when a waste spill of 1,000 gallons or more reaches surface waters.
In accordance with that regulation, the following news release has been prepared and issued to the media in Wayne County, NC.

Smoke Testing of Sewer Collection Lines and Vent to Daylight Requirment
May 20, 2021
The Town of Mount Olive has been conducting smoke test on its sewer collection lines. We have found buildings that do not have a sewer line vent to daylight (sewer vent located on the roof of your house) When smoke testing is done this can cause pressure to buildup in the sewer lines. Water can sometimes back out of the lines into the building. Smoke can also escape from the lines into the building. Please notify the town if you know of any sewer plumbing issues. The Town of Mount Olive will continue some testing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays indefinitely.
Should you have any additional questions please contact Glenn Holland, WWTP ORC at 919-658-6538 or 919-222-2158.
