OC Health Care Agency Issues Ocean Water Closure

(Santa Ana, California)  - The OC Health Care Agency, Environmental Health Division, has expanded the ocean water closure area to include Seal Beach’s Surfside Beach and Huntington Beach’s Sunset Beach due to a sewage spill. The sewage spill of approximately 8.5 million gallons was caused by a blockage and collapse of a sewer main line in the City of Carson. The affected ocean water area will remain closed to swimming, surfing, and diving until the results of follow-up water quality monitoring meet acceptable standards.
