[ARCHIVED] Health Advisory Lake Quinsigamond - Posted on 2/6/22

Please review the health advisory from city of Worcester received on 2/6/22



WORCESTER – On Sunday, Feb. 6, a failure in Worcester’s Lake Ave Sewer Pumping Station flooded the facility preventing the pumps from operating. This has caused the station to release untreated wastewater into Lake Quinsigamond. The City of Worcester Department of Public Works Sewers Divisions and contractors are working to resolve the issue.

The effected pumping station is the largest capacity station in the city typically pumping 3 million gallons of sewage per day.

The City of Worcester Division of Public Health and the Department of Inspectional Services have issued a public health advisory as a precaution.

Individuals should not use the lake for recreational activities such as ice fishing in the vicinity of the pumping station at 83 Lake Ave. and to the south of it until further notice.
