(Jan. 20, 2007) -- LB's Health Dept. has ordered Mother's Beach & Marine Stadium closed due to a sewage spill in the Cerritos Channel from an L.A. County Sanitation line.
In a written release, City Hall says the beaches remain open for non-recreational water contact uses. One southbound lane of PCH near the Marina Pacifica Mall was closed due to the incident on Friday.
"The City's Department of Health and Human Services (Health Department), Environmental Health Bureau will conduct daily water quality testing to monitor the bacteriological contamination in the beach waters.
