Heavy rains spill more sewage in river

Jul 20, 2017 12:02 am
Brian Nearing reports in the Albany Times Union that overnight rains July 17 caused large combined sewer overflows from Troy (5.4 million gallons), Albany (3.8 million gallons), and Halfmoon (648,000 gallons). About 1.3" of rain fell July 17 in Albany, causing the spills. A $45 million sewage treatment facility is still four or five years from starting up, according to Joe Coffey, Albany city commissioner for water and water supply. Until then, large amounts of sewage overflow will continue to end up in the Hudson River. Read the full story in the Albany Times Union.
