"No Swimming Advisory" Lifted for a Cove on Lake Norman


A NO SWIMMING advisory was lifted today for a cove on Lake Norman (see map).

The "No Swimming" advisory was issued on July 12. 2021 after an estimated 200 gallons of untreated sewage was discharged from a residence on Paradise Cove Court in Cornelius to a cove on Lake Norman. The discharge originated from a pipe damaged by a private contractor. The pipe has been repaired and the discharge discontinued.

Water samples collected by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services' staff reveal that bacteria counts are within safe limits; therefore, the NO SWIMMING advisory has been lifted.
