Ten thousand gallons of raw sewage flowed from a manhole in Shelburne and eventually into the LaPlatte River on Thursday night and Friday morning, according to a report from city officials.

The LaPlatte River flows into Lake Champlain's Shelburne Bay.

The overflow was caused by a failure in the power supply of a computer in the pump station that's supposed to monitor the station's systems and turn the pump on and off as necessary, according to Shelburne wastewater superintendent Chris Robinson.
