NOTICE OF DISCHARGE OF UNTREATED SEWAGE

The City of Brevard experienced a discharge of untreated sewage from Manhole #LO-055 at the intersection of Broadview Circle and Neely Road in the Lambo Creek Basin. This discharge was attributable to the combination of heavy rainfall and a sewer main blockage resulting from excessive grease discovered at the manhole site. This discharge began on Thursday, April 30, 2020 and lasted for approximately 5 hours during which time rainfall amounts totaling approximately 1.84” were reported by the National Weather Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority. The total estimated volume of the discharge was 7,450 gallons from the Neely Road manhole site.

Citizens are reminded that any discharge of storm water, surface water, ground water, roof runoff, and subsurface drainage connected to the city sewer system is a violation of the City Code of Ordinances. Customers uncertain of the soundness of their connection to the sewer system may call the City of Brevard Public Works Department at (828) 884-2171 Option 4 to confirm if they have a broken clean out or improperly attached roof drain or sump pump. This notice was required by North Carolina General Statutes Article 21 Chapter 143.215.C.

This the 30th day of April, 2020.
