The Wastewater Pollution Control Authority reported that the non-disinfected sewage spilled into the harbor starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday. The flow of sewage was not expected to stop until Thursday afternoon as the weather improves.

The Advocate of Stamford reports  that Carl Bochterie, a dockmaster, says that in some places brown sludge was floating two inches above the water.
