Broken Line Sending Raw Sewage Into Boulder Creek

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Boulder is working to address a break in a city sewer main that is allowing raw sewage to enter Boulder Creek.

The city says there’s no immediate threat to the drinking water in Boulder or Lafayette, which doesn’t come from the creek.

Residents are being urged to restrict water usage on such things as laundry to keep flows into the sewer system to a minimum.
