1 million gallons of sewage from Mexico closes San Diego beaches
More than a million gallons of raw sewage from Mexico flowed north Tuesday and forced officials to close San Diego-area beaches.
Border Field State Park, Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge Shoreline and Imperial Beach, including Surf Camp were closed, health officials said.
The sewage began spilling Tuesday morning from a broken pipe on a beach in Tijuana, less than a mile south of the United States-Mexico border, officials said.
Warning signs were posted along the affected areas. It was unclear how long the beaches would remain closed.
