Sewage Pipe Rupture Sullies Hudson River

TarrytownHudsonAttention Boaters and Swimmers: The Hudson River Health Department reported a broken 30-inch pipe at the Tarrytown Sewer Pump Station on July 10, 2023. Due to the break, partially treated sewage was being released into the Hudson River in Sleepy Hollow. The department warned that contact with the sewage was a potential health threat and warned boaters and swimmers to avoid all activities in and on the river until the water was deemed to be safe.

As of July 12, 2023 the advisory remained in effect. However the pipe had been repaired and sewage was no longer flowing into the river. The department was conducting water sampling tests and will let people know as soon as the water is safe to use again.
