Watch out New York! We may be melting because of the intense heat wave right now, but stay away from the water. A four alarm blaze at the North River Wastewater Plant has caused the plant to be shutdown, meaning that raw sewage is flowing into the Hudson River. Since the plant was shutdown on Wednesday, a whopping 120 million gallons of poop have flowed right into our water and warnings have been issued for beaches across the city.
