CARLSBAD (CNS / CBS 8) - Warning signs remain up at Ponto Beach and Batiquitos Lagoon Monday, after a broken pipe sent thousands of gallons of sewage into the lagoon.
The main line break Sunday caused about 2,000 gallons of sewage to spill into Batiquitos Lagoon near the Carlsbad-Encinitas city line, according to county environmental health officials.
The spill was reported about 8 a.m. and health officials were posting signs around the coastal wetlands area warning of the contamination, according to the county's Department of Environmental Health.
The signs will remain in place until samples confirm the water is safe for recreational use, DEH officials said.
The 610-acre lagoon, one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the Southern California coast, is run by the California Department of Fish and Game as a nature reserve, according to the Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation.
