Charlotte officials on Friday announced an interagency task force will investigate the PCBs and other toxic chemicals that were apparently dumped into the city’s sewer system.
The chemicals, which were discovered around midday Thursday at the Mallard Creek sewage-treatment plant, are not believed to have reached the creek itself. The city’s water supply was not affected.
“Anything that’s coming out of your faucet is OK,” Mayor Patrick Cannon said at a late-afternoon news conference.
The full-time task force of local, state and federal agencies will operate under the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s arson investigations unit.
It will pursue felony charges for contaminant dumping under state and federal law. Surveillance video is already being reviewed, police Chief Rodney Monroe said.
The treatment plant shut down Thursday once workers detected a suspicious sheen on the wastewater coming into the plant. The plant started back up Friday morning.
“They had to be paying attention to see it,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities Director Barry Gullet said of his staff.
