LaChute River

In Ticonderoga along the LaChute River Walk, Bicentennial Falls impresses visitors as the river, in its 2-mile descent from Lake George to Lake Champlain, drops over 220 feet, greater than the height of Niagara Falls.

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Sewer District No. 5 discharged approximately 17,500 gallons of untreated sewage and wastewater into the LaChute River Tuesday.

The permitted discharge took place at 157 Lake George Ave. around 1:54 p.m. It occurred because of heavy rains, according to a NY-Alert.

Flow was estimated at 500 gallons per minute, and the discharge duration was 35 minutes.
