AMSTERDAM - Progress is being made on repairing a sewage leak in Amsterdam.

City Engineer Rich Miller tells NewsChannel 13 they just finished replacing a whole section of pipe under Sloan Avenue between Clark and Smith.

He thinks this is where most of the sewage has been leaking since late July when they first noticed the troubles.

They are waiting for the water in Chuctununda Creek to recede so they can test to make sure the leak has stopped.

Miller says these are old clay pipes that were installed in the late 1800s or early 1900s and over time they break down.
