Sanitary Sewer Overflow Press Release, Sunday, October 25, 2020

10/25/2020

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.

The Town of Mount Olive had a discharge of untreated sewer from inside the Town’s wastewater treatment plant at 408 Wilkins Farm Road. The spill was discovered on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 11:30 A.M. and as of 3:30 P.M. was still ongoing. A total of 84,000 gallons was spilled.

The untreated waste entered the headwaters of the North East Cape Fear River. The spill occurred as a result of a four inch rainfall within a three to four hour period in our area.

This notice was required by North Carolina General Statutes Article 21 Chapter 143.215C. For more information contact Interim Town Manager Jammie Royall at (919) 658-9539.
