WOODBURY - Concerns are growing as millions of gallons of sewage is being released into Reynolds Channel after Hurricane Sandy damaged a sewage treatment plant.
The Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant was damaged by the hurricane and is forced to discharge sewage into the channel, instead of fully treating it.
Right now, the sewage is only being filtered and chlorinated before being discharged, instead of completing the full treatment process.
Officials say that it may be late November before the plant is repaired and sewage is fully treated again.
