Long Beach’s Coast Possibly Reopening Saturday, After Sewage Spill

A ruptured pipe and sewage spill occurred around 2 p.m. this past Monday afternoon in Boyle Heights in the area of Sixth Street and Mission Road, causing waste to flow into the Los Angeles River.

By the time the sewage flow was stopped Tuesday afternoon, a reported 2.4 million gallons of waste had spilled into the L.A. River and onto nearby streets.

According to the officials at the Los Angeles Department of Public Works they were able to recapture about 750,000 gallons of the spill.

The water in Long Beach is still being tested twice daily. Officials don’t expect the coastal beaches to re-open until at least Saturday.
