City Reports Untreated Sewage Discharge
The City of Greensboro on May 14 had a discharge of approximately 2,500 gallons of untreated wastewater from a sewer main located at 3200 Cypress Park Road.
The discharge lasted approximately two hours and was due to an accumulation of grease in an eight-inch sewer main. The untreated wastewater entered South Buffalo, tributary of the Cape Fear River basin. The line was cleaned with a combo jet truck and two nearby hydrants were opened to flush the creek.
