Sep 04, 2009 — The Potsdam Courier-Observer broke news yesterday that the septic system of the Walmart Supercenter in Potsdam failed more than three months ago. Since then, Walmart has been trucking thousands of gallons of its sewage almost every day to the wastewater treatment system in Canton.
The retail giant has been in contact with state environmental officials. But local leaders were left in the dark. Now the village of Canton says it will stop accepting the sewage today. David Sommerstein reports.
