County warns to stay away from creeks and adjacent waters

County health officials are advising people to stay away from creeks and adjacent waters after two sewage spills.

The first was reported at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, in which 15,000 gallons of sewage was released into San Luis Obispo Creek because a pump line failed at the city sewer plant off Prado Road.

The second was the release of an unknown amount of sewage at noon Sunday into Arroyo Grande Creek, Meadow Creek and Oceano Lagoon, according to the county.

That happened because some pumps failed at the South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District treatment plant, according to county officials.
