Pollution alert in effect along stretch of beach in La Jolla

Posted: Updated:

LA JOLLA, Calif. (CBS 8) - A pollution alert was issued Friday morning along a stretch of beach in La Jolla.

Wastewater started shooting up from a manhole in the 6200 block of Waverly Avenue Thursday.

County health experts are blaming a blocked sewer pipe.

It took about an hour for 5,000 gallons of sewage to spill into a storm drain that empties into the area.
