RALEIGH -- Because of PCB contamination, state public health officials are warning Wake County residents to eat no more than one meal a month of carp or catfish from parts of the Neuse River, Walnut Creek and Rocky Branch, and no more than one meal a week of all other fish caught in Walnut Creek and Rocky Branch.
The advisories cover the Neuse River from Crabtree Creek to Auburn-Knightdale Road, as well as Walnut Creek and Rocky Branch.
Laboratory tests on fish from those waterways show high levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
People with questions may contact the Divison of Public Health's Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch at 707-5900.
