Heavy rains are sending untreated sewage into the Hudson River. It's runoff that by law is allowed when heavy rain overloads the sewer system.
On the Hudson River alone as of early Friday afternoon, Department of Environmental Conservation alerts into NewsChannel 13 estimate 45,000 gallons of untreated discharge entered the river in Glens Falls, 35,000 gallons in Hudson Falls, 540,000 gallons in Troy and 5,000 gallons in Columbia County. That report came from the city of Hudson.
