Sewage Spill Prompts the Closure of Coastline in Long Beach
Unfortunately, sewage spills in the Long Beach area are all too often. The latest began this weekend when a sewage line began to leak on Saturday night. The waste entered the storm drain system and headed towards Shoreline Village at the mouth of the L.A. River.
Now, after 1,400 gallons of raw sewage, 2 1/2 miles of coastline are closed between First Place and Belmont Pier. When test results find that bacteria levels are within state law, the beaches will open up again.
