City Reports Untreated Sewage Discharge
On January 1, the City of Greensboro had a discharge of approximately 3,500 gallons of untreated wastewater from a manhole located at 3900 Kipling Dr. The discharge occurred for about seven hours and was due to an accumulation of grease in a line. The untreated wastewater entered South Buffalo, tributary of the Cape Fear River basin. The line was cleaned with a combo jet truck, the creek flushed, and the area around the manhole cleaned. Also, lime was applied to ground surfaces. Questions? Call Robert Martin at 336-373-2773.
