Raw Sewage Caused More Damage Than Initially Thought

San Diego Coast Keeper, a watchdog organization for water quality at our beaches and bays, is following up on the damage caused by a sewage spill caused by last week’s massive power outage.

The group examined the Penasquitos Lagoon and Creek, the area that was inundated with nearly two million gallons of raw sewage that spilled when pump stations lost power.

While there Coast Keeper says they’ve found at least a dozen dead fish and other elements still present in the water one week after the spill.

"The levels of sewage in this creek are comparable to what's coming out of the Tijuana river and over the border during the winter rainy season. This is the worst I've seen in San Diego that does not include winter Tijuana River,” said Coast Keeper’s Travis Pritchard who added the organization also found extremely high levels of fecal matter, ammonia and phosphorous as a result of the sewage.
