Sewage spill contaminates Sepulveda Channel

September 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Yuck. Over 500,000 gallons of sewage have been reported as spilled into the Sepulveda Channel in West LA, which carried the gunk to Ballona Creek and possibly destinations west. There will be a beach closure in Playa del Rey at least through October 2. If you were planning to beat the heat at the beach…well, you may want to focus on another one.

An extra note from the press advisory:

Recorded information on beach conditions is available around the clock on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Ocean Water Quality Hotline at 1-800-525-5662 and online at www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/beach.

Cleanup is underway.
