The Lincoln County Health Director has issued an advisory of a sewage spill at 3906 Rivendell Lane, Denver. Approximately 900 gallons of untreated sewage may have leaked into Lake Norman behind 3989 Blue Dory Lane, Denver. The wastewater spill occurred due to a sewer forcemain break. The flow has been stopped and testing of the discharge site has commenced.

As a preventive measure, the Health Director is advising all residents and boaters that this area may be contaminated with fecal coliform. Residents and lake users are advised not to have any bodily contact with the lake water in that area. A public notification message was sent to the properties affected and adjacent to the sewer spill site using the County's mass notification system called Everbridge, and the release--issued at 11 PM Sunday (Oct. 9th) has been posted to the County’s website (

The Killians Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant has started taking water samples and results will be forwarded to the County Public Works department who will notify the Health Department and public when it is clear to resume lake activities in this area. Until at least two consecutive samples indicate fecal coliform counts <200/ml at all sampling sites, the advisory will remain in effect. This decision is based on state guidelines per the Mooresville Regional Office of the NC Division of Environmental Management.
