Notification of wastewater spill in Haywood County

Written by 

The Town of Waynesville had a discharge of untreated wastewater from a sanitary sewer line located along N.C. 209, Crabtree Road adjacent to Richland Creek and the County fairgrounds.

The spill amount is estimated at 9,000 gallons. The sanitary sewer overflow was discovered around noon, July 31 during heavy rainfall. It lasted about two hours.

Diluted but untreated wastewaters entered Richland Creek. The discharge ended when rainfall and stream flows subsided, and the area affected was raked, cleaned and limed.

Maintenance activities and sewer system rehabilitation are being performed to identify and correct infiltration and inflow sources connected to the sewer system to prevent overflows in the event of future storms.
