An estimated 1,400 gallon sewage spill occurred this morning at the intersection of Roosevelt and Truxtun Rd at the Liberty Station area of Point Loma.

The spill, which was caused by grease blockage on a sewer line, started 10:35 a.m. and ended at 10:55 a.m. when crews from the City of San Diego removed the blockage. Crews were able to recover approximately 100 gallons of sewage; the remaining 1,300 gallons flowed into a storm drain leading to San Diego Bay.

Signs warning of sewage contamination are posted at Spanish Landing & Shelter Island Beaches and will remain in place until samples confirm the water is safe for recreational use.

For more information, please call Brian Drummy of City of San Diego Wastewater at (858)-292-6415.

For updates on beach closure information please call the 24-hr. hotline at (619) 338-2073.
