Clear Creek - raw sewage from Soda Creek Drainage

I just got a notification call from the County about raw sewage from some place up Soda Creek going into Clear Creek. No report of how much, but they said it is expected to continue until this weather cycle is over. I'll be notified when the situation is corrected and will post here.

Which county did you get that notification call from? Is it posted somewhere on the website? Thanks.

I receive downstream notifications from the Code Red call center, Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management. That is where I get these types of notices. If you call 866-419-5000 it repeats the message, but if you are not on the call list it may not give you any message. I received the call at 4:30 pm today, but I do not see it posted on the website.

Soda Creek is in Idaho Springs, the drainage by the Indian Hot Springs, or by the well known Water Fall and Water Wheel you can see from I-70.

So... how shitty is clear creek right now? Would running the brown be unadvisable?

Not too concerned about the sheriff, but I want to boat, for some reason the only info I can find is about some WY/MT kid yelling at some sand bagger (and not in the helpful flood way) On a scale of 1-10, 10 being full on shitfest, how dirty is the creek.

Bummer... Ran Dumont to Kermit's yesterday with awesome waves after Idaho Springs. If I had known about the sewage situation I probably would have made more of an effort to not ingest water.

Dilution is the solution.

I'd say a 6. Flowing nice and brown but nothing above and beyond your typical high water brown.

Any update on this? Have tried contacting the CCOEM but haven't gotten any where with that.
