TOWN OF LAKE WACCAMAW
On September 14th, 2014, the Town of Lake Waccamaw suffered a sanitary sewer spill located on Canal Cove Road at a manhole near 101 Canal Cove Road. The spill was a result of persistent inflow and infiltration of groundwater and surface water into the town’s sewer collection system. Rainfall of approximately 4 inches fell over several hours causing the spill. Pump trucks were called in to assist in stopping the spill. The spill resulted in approximately 8,800 gallons of untreated wastewater entering Lake Waccamaw. Two days of samples are required according to NCDENR. The first sample results will be available on Tuesday September 16th with the second sample results available on Wednesday September 17th.
