ENCINITAS, Calif. (AP) — A sewage spill has closed a San Diego County beach.
Authorities say Moonlight Beach in Encinitas is closed because a blocked sewer line sent about 6,200 gallons of sewage spilling from a manhole on Sunday.
The sewage flowed into a storm drain that leads to the beach. The blockage has been fixed but signs warning people of the contamination will be posted until samples confirm the water is safe.
