100,000 Gallon Discharge At Bolivar Sewage Treatment Plant

Bolivar sewage plant had a Waste discharge reported Tuesday.
Excess water from all the recent rain and snowmelt is reportedly to blame for partially treated water overflowing at the water treatment plant.
According to a NY-ALERT report issued Tuesday afternoon, the discharge was an estimated 100,000 gallons of untreated water and began at about 8 a.m. affecting Little Genesee Creek.
An Allegany County man has been arrested on charges of rape, burglary, unlawful imprisonment, menacing and criminal obstruction of breathing. New York State Troopers were called to a possible domestic situation on State Route 244 in the Town of Amity. They say 29-year-old Belmont resident Jordan Mullings forced unwanted sexual advances on the victim and attempted to prevent them from leaving or getting help.
The victim told officials that the incident stopped when they heard Troopers arrive.
Mullings was arrested and taken the Allegany County Jail on $50,000 bail. He’ll be back in court later this month.
