Westchester County officials say repairs on the broken pipe that leaked millions of gallons of raw sewage into the Hudson River is almost complete.  The leak also endangered an Ironman swim scheduled for Saturday; organizers will decided today whether to go ahead with the swin, part of a triathlon.
