Just East of Parachute, "Man Camp" housing is ordered closed after a sewage leak.

Almost forty employees of the company, Nabors Drilling USA, have been moved out of the site and into hotels.

The septic system is missing parts and all the raw sewage is spilling out of pipes and onto the ground.

The raw sewage has contaminated the ground around the trailers, and has even spread throughout the field next to the site.

A resident at the site made the complaint to Garfield County, which is what brought them out to close the camp.

It's up to the owners of the property and Nabors, who have been leasing the land, to work out the problem and get it fixed.
