Sewage spill spurs San Clemente beach closure

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.

Until further notice, 600 feet of Mariposa Street Beach is off limits for swimming and surfing.

Officials say a sewage overflow from an apartment complex Tuesday is to blame. They estimate up to 65 gallons of sewage may have reached the ocean through a storm drain.

Two days of clean samplings of ocean water are required before the beaches can reopen.
