Notice of Discharge of Untreated Sewage

The Town of Burnsville had a discharge of untreated wastewater from our wastewater collection system at the OMC Pump Station located at OMC Drive of approximately 424,500 gallons.  The discharge occurred on June 28, 2020 to June 29, 2020 for approximately 29 hours.  The untreated wastewater entered into Little Crabtree Creek in the French Broad River Basin. The Town has pump trucks running 24 hours keeping up with the flow to prevent anymore discharge. The Town is implementing a pump around system to allow for the pumping from OMC Pump Station to allow the Town to run a new sewer force main to prevent further discharge.  This notice was required by North Carolina General Statutes Article 21, Chapter 143.215C.  For more information contact Dillon Lundy, Public Works Director at 828-682-2420.
