Meh...just don't get it in your mouth

Around here the straightpiping into some creeks pretty much precludes the need for a flood to have raw sewage abound.

One of the most productive trout streams is affectionately called "The Sewer". You hear a flush, you better get movin'.

I just got off the phone with the Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management and received the current information. There was two known areas of raw sewage, one on Soda Creek and that has been capped, the other area is up Chicago Creek and they are working on it today and hope have it fixed. They also told me that there is numerous leach fields that are saturated and most likely leaking into side streams.

Yesterday I ran from Rigor down 3 times and a 4th run from below Mean & Bitter (the dam) and so far I'm not sick nor did I notice any crap floating.

Just fyi, hepatitis and tetnus are considered health risks in flood waters.
