Pueblo-area residents are being warned to stay out of Fountain Creek after some 62,000 gallons of sludge flowed into the water.

Officials say the sludge dumped into the creek when a valve in Colorado Springs was left open over the weekend. Utilities spokesman Steve Berry says the sewer-line valve was left open for about eight hours because of human error.

Health officials plan to test the site on Wednesday for any possible contamination problems.
