The water around the Aloha Drive Bridge in Newport Beach, California, is off-limits to water sports enthusiasts since July 3o, when the Orange County Health Care Agency reported a sewage spill into the area.
The closure in Newport Bay affects the area on either side of the Aloha Drive Bridge. According to the Orange County Health Care Agency, the closure is due to a 140-gallon sewage spill caused by a break in a sewage line.
“The affected ocean water area will remain closed to ocean water-contact sports for a minimum of three days and until the results of follow-up water quality monitoring meet acceptable standards,” health officials said.
The bridge is between Bayside Drive and Linda Isle.
Information about Orange County ocean, bay, or harbor closures is available at 714-433-6400 or at ocbeachinfo.com. Sewage spills can be reported to 714-433-6419.
