Notification of Wastewater Release - November 12, 2020



General Statute 143-215.1C requires that the owner or operator of any wastewater collection or treatment works to issue a news release when an untreated wastewater discharge of 1,000 gallons or more reaches surface waters.

On November 12, 2020, the Town of Clayton had a discharge of untreated wastewater caused by a severe rain event. Approximately 7,000 gallons of untreated wastewater was released from a manhole near the WWTP located at 1000 Durham St. The untreated wastewater entered a storm drain leading to Little Creek.

The Division of Water Resources was notified of the events on November 13, 2020, and is reviewing the matter.
