Beaches re-open after sewage spills

January 14, 2010

Environmental health officials have re-opened both Oceano Beach and Avila Beach after two separate sewage spills this week caused environmental health officials to close the beaches.

Public health officials closed Oceano Beach on Wednesday after the San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District reported they had released between 160,000 to 180,000 gallons of partially treated sewage into the ocean.

In addition, on Tuesday, a blocked sewer line was determined to be the culprit in a 100 gallon raw sewage spill. From there, the sewage flowed from Stenner Creak into San Luis Creek and then to Avila Beach.

County health officials said the water samples tested within state-approved levels for human contact earlier today.

    180,000 gallons NOT EVEN DETECTABLE! That’s right… I called Environmental Health today and spoke to the person who had just received the test results. Not only is the water safe, the normal numbers were not even elevated!

    YET, the anti-dunes HYPOCRITES who RANTED in front of the BOS and Coastal Commission about a possible spill from an RV with 50 gallons on board haven’t even PEEPED about the 180,000 gallons spilled on “their” private beach yesterday! What idiots, fools, and HYPOCRITES.

    WERE ARE YOU ON THIS NELL LANGFORD??? THATS Y-O-U-R POOP IN OUR OCEAN!
