Wastewater spills into New York river

Nov 04 2009

Up to 25,000 gallons of wastewater have spilled into a New York river, according to US government officials.

The New York state department of environmental conservation (DEC) has confirmed that the untreated wastewater seeped into the Mettawee river after a spillage occurred at the Village of Granville’s sewer plant, which processes approximately 575,000 gallons of wastewater every day.

It has not yet been established whether the incident represents a contravention of environmental legislation, but the DEC is conducting investigations into the cause of the failure at the 70-year-old plant, which has been working on improvements to its procedures since 2003.
