Niagara Falls Turns Black

Posted by on Friday, August 4, 2017

People in Niagara Falls are looking for answers after water turned black over the weekend.

The city of Niagara Falls released wastewater over the weekend into the Niagara River.

The Niagara River flows north from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. It forms part of the border between the province of Ontario and the state of New York in the United States.

Those in the area describe the discharge as "black and foul-smelling".

If found guilty of violating state water quality standards, the city could face a fine of $37,500.
