All San Diego beaches open after sewage spill caused by blackout
The final two beaches in San Diego County that had been closed because of sewage spills caused by the massive regional power failure have been reopened, environmental health officials announced Wednesday night.
The last to reopen were Bayside Park in Chula Vista and the stretch of beach from Torrey Pines Beach at the Los Penasquitos Lagoon outlet to 15th Street in Del Mar.
Ocean samples at all beaches have shown the water safe for human contact, officials said.
