From the Post: "Raw sewage is flowing into the Anacostia River from a leak in a major sewer line that carries untreated waste from a pumping station in Southeast Washington, D.C. Water and Sewer Authority officials said last night. [...] The cause of the leak was not immediately known. It was discovered when workers repairing part of the riverbank spotted water churning nearby. Tests showed that sewage probably was flowing out of a buried line somewhere between the O Street pumping station and the riverbank." They'll first try to bypass the pipe (seven feet below water), which could be done today, and then work on repairing it. As for any health concerns: "Dunn said that the leak near the O Street station does not pose a threat to public health, noting that more untreated sewage flows into the river on rainy days, when runoff overwhelms the city's sewer system and treatment capacity." Lovely. City Paper has excerpts from the WASA media advisory on the leak. And yes, this is the WASA operation just across First Street from the ballpark.
UPDATE: I should note that in 2005 and 2006 there was extensive interior and exterior rehabilitation work done to the 1905 Beaux Arts Main Pumping Station building, plans for which went through the city and federal bureaucracy before I became the source material addict that I am today. So here's the February 2005 National Capital Planning Commission executive action on the rehabilitation plans. The repointing of the exterior masonry and the repair of damaged windows, doors, and building cornice was why the building was under a white tarp in early 2006.
UPDATE II: The Associated Press is reporting: "The sewage leak into the Anacostia River has been stopped. DC's Water and Sewer Authority set up a bypass pump system to stop the sewage from reaching the river."
