    Yuck! County Pipe Breaks Sending 7,000 Gallons Of Sewage Into Colorado Lagoon; Some Neighborhood Streets Closed/Restricted For At Least 48 Hrs.

    (December 29, 2005) -- LB Health Officials have closed or restricted some neighborhood streets (details below) for at least 48 hours and issued beach closures for Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium areas following the Dec. 28 rupture of an L.A. County sewage pipe.

    The broken 14" diameter pipe sent an estimated 7,000 gallons of sewage into Colorado Lagoon via the city's storm drain system between 10:30 a.m. and noon before the discharge was halted.

    In a written release, LB's Health Dept. says the following streets have been closed "for a minimum of 48 hours":

    • Ximeno, between 7th and 4th Streets
      North and South of Ximeno is shut down [the release says north/south OF Ximeno, strange because Ximeno runs north/south; we presume the "of" is a typo; expect detours in the area.]
      Open to residents only

    • 7th Street, between Termino and Park
      Down to one lane in both directions

    • Street closed

    The City advises residents to use alternate routes, such as east and west bound Anaheim, PCH and 2nd Street; 10th Street to Redondo westbound; and Santiago eastbound.

    LB's Health Officer, Darryl M. Sexton, M.D., has also issued beach closure advisories for Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium areas, with closure signs posted and daily tests being conducted until bacteria levels fall to meet state standards.

    An above ground line has been set up to divert the sewage from a nearby pump station.
