Water quality advisory issued for SE Charlotte ponds after sewage spill

- A water quality advisory was issued Friday for two ponds at McAlpine Creek Park located at 8711 Monroe Road in Charlotte, authorities said. 

The advisory was issued following the discharge of an unknown quantity of sewage from a private facility on August 25, 2017 which entered a small stream that flows into the ponds.

Necessary repairs to stop the discharge are currently underway, officials said. 

Staff with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services said they will continue to test water quality in the pond until bacteria levels are determined to be within safe ranges at which time the advisory will be lifted.
