BURNSVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 6, 2020) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has suspended all Delayed Harvest trout stockings in the Cane River until further notice, due to a partial equipment failure at the Town of Burnsville Wastewater Treatment Plant in Yancey County.

The section of Cane River now closed to stockings is downstream of the plant and fisheries biologists are concerned about the potential for negative impacts to water quality. The Hatchery Supported section of Cane River is upstream of the plant and is not affected by the equipment failure. It will be stocked as normal in 2020.

For more information about the equipment failure at the Town of Burnsville Wastewater Treatment Plant, visit the town’s website.
