Sewage spill danger ends on Catawba River

-A A +A

The state Department of Health and Environmental Control posted no-swimming notices at the Catawba Nation landing and Landsford Canal on July 15, the day after a 21-inch pipe ruptured and dumped untreated sewage into Kings Branch in Charlotte for 11 hours.
