Sewage Spill Along Bob Jones Bike Trail

BobJonesTrailA broken sewer line between the Avila Beach Golf Course and Coffee Berry Place in Avila Beach caused a spill of approximately 500 gallons of raw sewage along the side of the Bob Jones Bike Trail. 

Personnel from the San Miguelito Mutual Water Company were notified of the broken line at 10:00, excavated and isolated the sewer line, and repaired the break.  Workers applied lime to the sewage in an attempt to disinfect the bike path.  Workers were onsite with a pumper truck and water truck at 2:45 PM to clean the bike path of residual sewage and lime.

Use caution when on the Bob Jones Bike Path in that paving was excavated in order to repair the sewer line.  San Miguelito Mutual Water Company anticipates repairing the pavement on Monday March 18.
