SC lifts advisory for polluted river

Oct 6, 2010 10:25:00 AM - thestate.com
State environmental officials have lifted a water advisory that had been issued after untreated wastewater spilled into the Great Pee Dee River in Marlboro County.

Multiple media outlets reported the Department of Health and Environmental Control said water samples from the river now meet recreational water standards.

Wastewater spilled from a dike at Mohawk Industries in Bennettsville on Sept. 30. The plant makes flooring.

DHEC says the breach that allowed untreated wastewater to enter the river has been stabilized.
