NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. -- The Niagara Falls Water Board is taking new steps to prevent another discharge incident like the one back in July.

The board issued a report of the incident to the department of environmental conservation.

In the report, the board says miscommunication between workers led to a pump running longer than it should have.

The result was black, sewage-filled discharge leaking into the Niagara River.

The board is now making some procedural changes, and is considering moving the pump.

The DEC released a statement Friday, saying they are reviewing the report to determine the next steps.
