1,000-gallon sewage spill shuts down Huntington Harbour to swimmers

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A large sewage spill in Huntington Harbour has forced officials to shut down the area to swimmers.

The 1,000-gallon spill was caused by a blockage in a sewer line in Anaheim, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency.

Orange County health officials closed the bay to water-contact sports between Sunset Aquatic Marina and Portofino Cove Marina on Sunday.

The water is being tested, and the area will stay closed until the water quality meets acceptable standards.
