Contamination signs have been posted at Dog Beach due to a sewage spill up in Linda Vista. The warning signs were posted today – Wednesday – at Dog Beach – where the San Diego River enters the ocean. It’s estimated that around 4,150 gallons of sewage spilled, contaminating Dog Beach – all from grease blocking a main sewer line.
The city’s Public Utilities Department said it occurred about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at 7011 Linda Vista Road, near Ulric Street.
The Warning signs will be up until the City determines the water is safe enough for human recreational use.
Beach closure information can be obtained by calling a 24-hour hotline at (619) 338-2073.
Crews working until about 8:15 p.m. were able to capture all but an estimated 1,025 gallons, which flowed into a storm drain that leads into the San Diego River.
