500 gallon sewage spilled along the Bob Jones Bike Trail
March 18, 2013
Bikers and walkers along the trail reported the spill at about 10 a.m.
Personnel from the San Miguelito Mutual Water Company responded to the spill, excavated and isolated the sewer line and repaired the leak. The workers then applied lime (calcium hydroxide) to the sewage in an attempt to disinfect the bike path.
County Health Department official said the sewage did not enter the San Luis Obispo Creek.
