Cuesta College closed after sewage spill

The Cuesta College campus is closed today due to a sewage spill.

A tree on adjacent Camp San Luis Obispo property toppled Sunday and damaged a bridge over Chorro Creek and severed the college’s sewer line. The severed line has been tapped and turned off, college officials say.

The college maintenance and operations department is working with Camp San Luis Obispo personnel to repair the line. There are no students on campus and a reduced number of staff is working this week.
