NYS DEC investigating Yates County spill
the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation responded to Yates County on Thursday for a spill at a wastewater treatment plant.
Officials say the Village of Penn Yan wastewater treatment plant had a 35,000 gallon spill. There's no word on what exactly was spilled, but officials say the local drinking water system has not been affected, but they will closely monitor the area.
The DEC says initial reports say the spill was caused by operator error, but a full investigation will be launched either-way.
