CT Post: An environmental service company says about 150,000 gallons of untreated wastewater has discharged into the Naugatuck River in Seymour from a broken manhole.

The spill has been stopped as crews make repairs, a spokesman for Veolia Environnement North America said Friday (December 27).

Emergency responders from Veolia arrived on the scene at 1 p.m. Wednesday and found the manhole structure had partly collapsed, sending debris to the bottom of the manhole and blocking the flow of untreated wastewater to the Seymour Wastewater Treatment Plant.
