The latest batch of storms to hit the Hudson Valley have led to raw sewage being discharged into the Hudson River in Dutchess County.
The Poughkeepsie Water Control Plant issued its latest alert on Tuesday, when an undisclosed amount of untreated waste was spilled into the Hudson River near Rinaldi Boulevard.
The intermittent discharges were first reported at approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Officials cited wet weather, and the strong storm front that produced heavy rain in the area overnight, stating that it may "potentially impact public areas." As of 10 a.m., the discharge was still ongoing.
Last month, hundreds of thousands of gallons of untreated waste were spilled into the Hudson River near the same spot over the course of several, following the thunderstorms that struck the region.
Officials said that the rate of discharge was to be determined once the storms pass the area.
