Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who has information about the illegal PCB dumpings.

In February, polychlorinated biphenyls, a cancerous chemical also known as PCBs, were dumped behind the Food Lion on Harris Blvd. and West Sugar Creek Road. Investigators believe a septic trunk dumped the toxic chemicals behind the store. From there investigators believed the toxins went through the sewer lines into the Mallard Creek Wastewater system.

Following the illegal dumping incidents in February, the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Utility Department has continued sampling and testing at five wastewater plants and believed that illegal PCB dumping may have occurred at the McAlpine Creek Wastewater Treatment plant as well.

Officials say some but not all samples of biosolids at McAlpine Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant indicated very low levels of PCB  from September 2013 to February 2014, and samples since February showed higher levels of PCB.

CMUD has observed the drinking water as well and says it was not affected by this incident.

CMPD is continuing to follow up on any and all leads of the illegal dumping incident and asks anyone with information on this illegal sewer system dumping contact the Crimestopper Hotline at 704-334-1600. A $10,000 reward is in place for information about the February illegal dumping incident.
