Long Beach closes beaches after 50,000 gallons of sewage spill into Los Cerritos Channel

All beaches in Long Beach were temporarily closed Saturday, Dec. 26, after 50,000 gallons of sewage spilled into the Los Cerritos Channel, city health officials said.

Dr. Anissa Davis, Long Beach city health officer, ordered the closures, which stretch approximately seven miles, after the city received a report of the spill from the Los Angeles County Department of Sanitation, officials said.

The spill occurred in Long Beach and reportedly occurred after a loss of power led to a pump station failure, officials said.

A recreational water quality health inspection team was monitoring the water quality until results comply with California water quality standards. It wasn’t immediately known how long the beaches might be closed.

1. Well, I guess that's one way to keep people

from going to the beach to spread the virus.
