An estimated 1,000 gallon sewage spill occurred Wednesday morning at the 200 – 300 block of Harbor Drive South in Oceanside. The spill, which was caused by grease blockage on a sewer line main, started 6:35 a.m. and ended at 8:15 a.m. when crews from the City of Oceanside removed the blockage.
Crews were able to recover approximately 400 gallons of sewage; the remaining 600 gallons flowed into a storm drain leading to Oceanside Harbor.
Signs warning of sewage contamination are posted at harbor access ways and will remain posted for at least 72 hours.
