Sewage spill closes swath of Long Beach coast

A portion of the Long Beach coast was off limits to swimmers this morning because of a sewage spill.

According to authorities, the coastline between 3rd Place near downtown Long Beach and the Belmont Pier near Belmont Shore is closed until more water testing is done.

The sewage spill occurred Saturday morning in South Pasadena. The circumstances are under investigation.

Long Beach in recent years has been working to improve its water quality. Two summers ago, the city was plagued by numerous beach closures due to various pollution problems.
