LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Part of Aliso County Beach has been closed due to sewage contamination, officials said.

The water 150 feet upcoast and 150 feet downcoast of Aliso Creek is closed to swimming, surfing and diving because of a sewage spill, Orange County officials said.

About 150 gallons of sewage was spilled by a blockage of a private sewer in Mission Viejo, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency.

The ocean in that area will remain closed until testing finds the water quality meets acceptable standards.
