SAN DIEGO (CNS) - All San Diego beaches closed as a result of sewage spills triggered by last week's massive power outage were open Thursday.
Beaches from Solana Beach south through Del Mar to Scripps Pier, as well as Bayside Park in Chula Vista and the eastern shore of Silver Strand State Beach in San Diego Bay, were closed after the massive outage caused two of the city's sewer pump stations to shut down, triggering the spills, city of San Diego officials said.
About 1.9 million gallons of sewage spilled into the Los Penasquitos Lagoon, which empties into the ocean at Torrey Pines State Park south of Del Mar.
In Chula Vista, about 125,000 gallons of sewage spilled into the Sweetwater Channel, west of Interstate 5 and State Route 54. That sent waste into San Diego Bay and closed Bayside Park in Chula Vista. Across the bay, it tainted waters on the bay side of Silver Strand, south of Coronado, according to beach officials.
The outage first struck about 3:40 p.m. last Thursday and power was fully restored to San Diego County about 12 hours later, San Diego Gas & Electric reported.
