Environmental group threatens to sue Thomasville over sewage spills
THOMASVILLE, N.C. — The Southern Environmental Law Center is giving the city of Thomasville 60 days to address its sewage spill issues.
The Southern Environmental Law Center is assisting a Yadkin riverkeeper who says when sewage spills happen in Thomasville, the runoff flows into the creeks and lakes that feed the Yadkin River.
Thomasville is taking steps to address the Center’s concerns by installing larger pumps and motors that can handle more sewage and rain water at the Northside Pump Station. A major sewer system will also be updated within the next year.
The city is also looking to secure funding to update the East Davidson Pump Station. City leaders hope these fixes will prevent future sewer spills and address the concerns of the conservation.
