As of September 10, 2012 at 2:30 PM., the Lincoln County Health Department has approved cancelling a “No Swimming Advisory” for all residents in the area the 8100 block of Waterford Drive, in the King Cove Subdivision, in Stanley, North Carolina.
The advisory was issued because of a waste water spill of an estimated 200 gallons. The untreated wastewater spilled into Lake Norman in the Catawba River Basin.
Lincoln County Public Works has collected water samples for testing daily from three sites at the affected area. Two consecutive samples showed test results below the required maximum levels at all three sites, and all sampling now meets the North Carolina Division of Water Quality standards.
