No swimming advisory lifted for part of Lake Norman after sewage spill

A no swimming advisory for part of Lake Norman was lifted Friday after hundreds of gallons of sewage discharged into the water.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services, an estimated 150 gallons of sewage entered a single cove between Springwinds Drive and Penninsula Cove Lane in Cornelius. The discharge was due to a broken sewer line on John Conner Road. Water crews have stopped the sewage flow.

Officials issued a no swimming advisory Wednesday for the single cove.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services staff said they would monitor water quality in the affected area until conditions are deemed safe for human contact.
