SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Repairs are starting on a damaged pipe that spewed at least 7 million gallons of sewage into a central New York lake.

Onondaga County officials tell The Post-Standard of Syracuse repairs were beginning Saturday morning on the 42-inch pipe that burst last week during heavy rains and sent the sewage into Onondaga Lake.

The county report filed with the Department of Environmental Conservation said sewage spilled into the lake at a rate of 5,000 gallons per minute for more than a day.

A news release issued by County Executive Joanie Mahoney’s office said that no health or major environmental impacts had been identified.
