300,000 Gallons Of Sewage Just Entered The Mohawk River
Conditions on the Mohawk River are about to get real crappy. Officials say a broken sewer line is the reason hundreds of gallons of sewage will end up in the Mohawk River.
According to CBS 6, the pipe was reported broken around Monday morning at 9:45AM. Since then, it has been spewing untreated sewage into North Chuctanunda Creek which is adjacent to the Mohawk River. This part of the river is located in the City of Amsterdam.
An estimated 50 gallons a minute is currently entering the river with no word on how long it will take to repair the pipe.
