An estimated 3,400 gallon sewage spill occurred yesterday evening at the intersection of Las Cumbres and Cirrus Street in the Fashion Valley area of San Diego. The spill, which was caused by blockage of roots, started at 5:57 PM and ended at 7:05 PM when crews from the City of San Diego Waste Water Department removed the blockage.
Approximately 1,900 gallons of the sewage was recovered so an estimated 1,500 gallons of sewage flowed into a storm drain that leads to the San Diego River. Signs warning of sewage contamination are posted at the San Diego River outlet at Dog Beach in Ocean Beach and will remain in place until samples confirm the water is safe for recreational use.
