Alamitos Bay Closed Following Sewage Spill

NBC LA reported today (10/3/2012) that a weekend sewage spill will likely keep Long Beach Alamitos Bay beaches shut down for at least two more days.

A private sump pump that serves a residential community near the Cerritos Channel failed on Sunday, spilling sewage that flowed in Alamitos Bay, city public health officials said.

Two locations at Alamitos Bay – the Second Street Bridge at Bayshore, and 56th Place – recently received “C” grades on Heal the Bay’s annual Beach Report Card for summer water quality.
