Beaches re-open after sewage spills
January 14, 2010
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.
