Closed Monday after 1,000 gallons of sewage spilled into Los Cerritos Channel, three affected beaches were allowed to open back up to the public today after tests concluded the water was within state standards. Mother’s Beach, Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium were closed after a private pumping station failed, spilling raw sewage into the storm system. Water quality monitoring will continue to be performed by the Health Department’s Recreational Water Quality Program on a weekly basis, says Long Beach officials.
