Joseph and Jennifer Walsh will received nearly $50,000 from the City of Denver after a clogged sewer line flooded their home on two occasions and put their family out thousands of dollars.

The city had told families impacted by the flood to hire a contractor to clean up their basements and then file a claim with the city, but that proved to be a high cost for the Walsh family.

After a long wait, Denver City Council approved money to cover the claims in full during a meeting Monday night.
