Hoboken Kayaking Canceled – Raw Sewage!

Hoboken Kayaking canceled 7/23; Poopy situation to blame

The Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse announces:

“Unfortunately we have to announce that Public Kayaking program this Saturday, July 23rd, will be canceled due to a release of raw sewage into the river yesterday.

Swimmers and Kayakers have been warned to avoid the Hudson over the weekend. Further details can be found in the NY Post.”

Way to go, “raw sewage!” Thanks for ruining summer fun!

(Oh, and I suppose once Hoboken’s “wet weather pump” downtown becomes operational, we’ll have similar river closures as well).

There was a fire yesterday in the north river waste-water treatment plant (the one under Riverbank State Park) on the Hudson river at 125th street. The fire caused untreated sewage to flow into the Hudson river. The exact volume is unknown but the flow has continued down the Hudson, so it’s going to be several days before you want to put any body part in the river.

This is a horrible huge environmental mess that is still happening. No laughing matter if you ask me. Pretty depressing. And the pollution is still forcefully pumping into the river at many points totally untreated. I had been watching the river get healthier and healthier-quite beautiful-every year. We will have to see how long it takes for the water quality to be safe once more. Not very funny really….
Unless you see setting back the environmental health of the Hudson River back about 40 years as a joke.

Please be safe out there and listen to the warnings and dangers of exposure to the bacteria in raw sewage. [quote comment=”209018″]This is a horrible huge environmental mess that is still happening.
