Lincoln cove water safe again, officials say

DENVER -- Lincoln County health officials have given the all-clear for people to fish in or come in contact with water from a cove where a sewage spill took place last week.

The health department said Monday morning that it was cancelling a no-swimming advisory for residents in the cover area around the 8300 block of Ranger Island Marina Road. That advisory was issued Wednesday, after about 20 gallons of untreated sewage spilled into a cove of Lake Norman. the spill resulted from a commercial vehicle damaging a sewer connection.

Lincoln County Public Works says three consecutive tests of the water found fecal coliform levels to be well below hazard levels.
