The Brevard Waste Water Treatment Plant had a discharge of untreated wastewater at the WWTP at 3226 Wilson Road, Pisgah Forest, of about 10,000 gallons.

The discharge occurred Sunday for about 10 hours.

The untreated wastewater entered the French Broad River.

The cause of the discharge was heavy rainfall amounts within a short time overwhelming the plants flow capacity.
