Greensboro, NC -- The City of Greensboro has reported a spill of untreated wastewater that happened on July 14.
Approximately 1.45 million gallons of untreated wastewater spilled from a 72" outfall that flows directly into the T.Z. Osborne Facility.
The spill lasted for about six and a half hours because of a power and generator outage. There was also heavy rain.
The untreated wastewater entered South Buffalo Creek in Cape Fear River Basin.
No environmental impacts were observed or are expected as heavy rains caused very high flows in the creek before and after the discharge.
