Tega Cay’s water, both its cove and its taps, are back to normal.
The no swim advisory for the cove between Marquesas Avenue and Palmyra Drive has been lifted. An advisory was issued earlier this week following a wastewater spill from a treatment facility.
While swimming in Lake Wylie isn’t common in early February, the event did cause a change of venue for the city’s annual Polar Plunge. The event benefiting Special Olympics, hosted by the city police department, usually is held at the city’s beach club. Saturday’s event will now be held at the outdoor pool at the beach club. In-person registration begins at 9 a.m. Saturday. Last year’s event raised more than $24,000.
The lifting of the no swim advisory comes a day after a boil water advisory was lifted for some Tega Cay residents and businesses. Customers in the Stonecrest and Graystone areas needed to boil or flush their water following a water main break in the area Tuesday, caused by construction.
