A sewer spill in the eastern part of Lincoln County Wednesday has resulted in a no-swim advisory until further notice.

The spill, estimated to have reached 20 gallons, flowed into a Lake Norman cove near the 8300 block of Ranger Island Marina Road in Denver, according to a press release issued by the county’s Public Works Department.

A result of a commercial vehicle damaging the sewer connection, the flow of untreated sewage has since been stopped.

The Health Department advises that boaters, fishermen and swimmers avoid contact with the lake water in the affected area at this time.

The Division of Water Quality has been notified of the event and is reviewing the matter. For more information, contact Lincoln County Public Works at (704) 736-8497.
