Chico's director of public works is responding to a disturbing discovery by a chico state environmental studies class.

They found septic drainage flowing into the little chico creek.

Public works has found the source of the sewage draining into the little chico creek-- the location-- 7th and broadway. City workers have been vacuuming a manhole just downstream of the leak to stop the flow to the creek.

Martinez didn't want to name the business on camera but says they are fully cooperative with working to remedy the situation. He hopes to have the situation remedied before the weekend.
