On August 20, 2020, Farm 2601-2, located at 7301 N.C. Hwy 210 West, Garland, NC,
experienced a discharge of swine wastewater. As soon as the discharge was discovered, farm
personnel took immediate steps to both stop the flow and contain and return wastewater to
the farm’s permitted system. NCDENR was also notified. The discharge resulted from a break
in a recycle line on the farm. The volume of the discharge was estimated to be between 10,000
and 15,000 gallons. The wastewater entered an unnamed tributary of Smith Mill Pond Run.
Remediation efforts have been successful in capturing and land applying the majority of the
discharged material.

This notice was required by North Carolina General Statutes, Article 21, Chapter 143.2215C
