According to a report by Foreign Media on April 22, a sewage leak occurred in Los Angeles County, California, on the 20th. Nearly 950,000 litres (250,000 gallons) of sewage flowed from the county’s Downey city to Long Beach city and into the Los Angeles River, and the city of Long Beach has announced the temporary closure of all open public beaches.

According to reports, the sewage leakage was caused by equipment failure, and sanitation personnel completed the first round of cleaning work on the 21st. Long Beach’s health department is currently monitoring local water quality, and it’s unclear when the beach will reopen.
