South Platte Sewage Spill

Anyone know where the sewage spill was?

DENVER—The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District is cleaning up a sewage spill in the South Platte River just north of Denver that is being blamed on the heavy rains the last two days.
District spokesman Steven Frank says debris washed in by stormwater blocked filters Friday and caused the overflow. He says employees quickly used bypass pumps to reroute the incoming wastewater.

If it is north of the Denver, it is well down river of the cleanup today, so there shouldn't be any issues with that.

As mentioned by Zboda, way downstream of where today's cleanup is taking place. Should be plenty of rubbish to tend to with the years first flush just having happened...
