The latest batch of storms to hit the Hudson Valley have led to raw sewage being discharged into the Hudson River in the area for the fifth time in less than a week.
The Poughkeepsie Water Control Plant issued its latest alert on Wednesday, when an undisclosed amount of untreated waste was spilled into the Hudson River near Rinaldi Boulevard.
The intermittent discharges were first reported at approximately 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon. Officials cited multiple storm fronts producing heavy rain as the cause of the latest discharge, stating that it may "potentially impact public areas."
Officials said that the rate of discharge was to be determined once the storms pass the area.
A similar discharge in Orange County had thousands of gallons of waste being discharged per minute earlier on Wednesday.
