Los Angeles County health officials have issued an ocean water closure for Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro following the release of about 1 million gallons of untreated sewage.
The discharge happened Monday at about 6 a.m. and spilled into the Dominguez Channel, which terminates near Cabrillo Beach, officials said.
Public Health officials are urging the public to avoid any water contact from the impacted area. The water closure notice will be in effect until bacterial level meets standards.
Residents can get more information on beach conditions by calling the county’s beach hotline at 1-800-525-5662 or visiting the L.A. County Public Health website.
