DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WKBW) - About 990,000 gallons of sewage was dumped into Lake Erie over the weekend in Dunkirk.

 

 

Officials say this happened about 7 a.m. Sunday off of Wright Park Drive. The amount of rain that fell across the area played a role in the sewage being leaked into Lake Erie.

 

Officials say the discharge was partially treated with disinfection.

 

The Buffalo National Weather Service reports that over two inches of rain fell in the Dunkirk region over the weekend.

Every sewage district in New York State has sewage overflows. The governor stated we can not afford rainfall treatment every where.

2 inches of rain doesn't seem like enough rain to cause that kind of spill. Maybe the rain is being blamed to ease tensions in the area...?
