Residents in the village of Richmond are concerned that raw sewage is being dumped into the Jock River after a pumping station was overwhelmed by high volumes of rain.

The city has installed a bypass pipe from the pumping station to the Jock River to help relieve some of the flows at the Richmond pumping station, said Kevin Wylie, the city’s general manager of public works and environmental services, in response to a request for information.
