[ARCHIVED] Water Quality Advisory Lifted for Muddy, Mill and Monarcas Creeks

The Forsyth County Department of Public Health told city officials this morning that the water quality advisory for Muddy, Mill and Monarcas creeks can be lifted. In an email to Assistant City Manager Aaron King, Public Health Director Joshua Swift said he made the recommendation “based on guidance from the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch” at the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.

The Health Department told residents to stay out of the creeks after sampling monitors revealed elevated levels of nitrites, nitrates, ammonia nitrogen and other potentially harmful chemicals in Monarcas Creek resulting from the fire at the Winston Weaver Co. fertilizer plant. The warning included the downstream portions of Mill and Muddy Creeks.
