O.C. beaches back open after sewage spill
DANA POINT, Calif. (KABC) -- Three miles of coastline from Dana Point to Capistrano Beach that was closed after a major sewage spill last week s now reopen.
The beaches were closed due to a sewage break in Rancho Santa Margarita five days ago, where a 24-inch iron wastewater pipe ruptured, sending 500,000 gallons of raw sewage into the ocean at Doheny State Beach.
Repair work on the broken pipeline was completed late Friday, and public health officials needed two consecutive days of clean water testing before reopening the beaches.
