$20 million sought to prevent Niagara Falls discharges

Dec 19, 2017

A plan is in the works to help prevent more "black water" and other illegal discharges into the lower Niagara River. Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be calling on the State Legislature to fund major improvements to the Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

Lt. Gov. Hochul says pictures of "the black goo" below Niagara Falls, in July, gave the area a "black eye."
