Sewage spill in cove adjacent to Jetton Park

Location of sewage spill in cove adjacent to Jetton Park

July 5. There’s been another sewage spill in Lake Norman, this time in a cove between Jetton Park and Halyard Pointe/Double Eagle in The Peninsula.

A pipe failure on July 4 caused the overflow, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services (CMSW).

It’s the third spill in five weeks in Cornelius waters.

The new spill is about 875 gallons of sewage caused by a pipe failure at 18630 Jetton Road. The line is being repaired and the discharge discontinued, according to a press release from CMSW.

They issued a “No Swim” advisory.

CMSW staff will monitor water quality in the area until bacteria levels are determined to be suitable for human contact at which time the no-swim advisory will be lifted.
