The City of Kingston has installed four Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) monitoring devices, which cover all of Kingston’s Combined Sewer Overflow locations. This technology allows city staff and the public the opportunity to be notified via our City Website whether one or more of the CSO outfalls are in the process of overflowing at the current time.
The four locations are listed above. When the listing indicates Normal, no overflows are detected at that location. If the listing indicates Active, a discharge is currently happening.
The DEC states “CSO outfalls may discharge rainwater mixed with untreated sewage during or following rainfall or snowmelt events and may contain bacteria that can cause illness.”
The DEC recommends to “avoid contact or recreation (swimming, boating, and fishing) within the waterbody during or following a rainfall or snowmelt event.”
To learn more about CSO’s, please see our Combined Sewer Overflow Information.
