Contamination warning signs posted at San Dieguito River outlet in Del Mar

An estimated 3,375 gallon sewage spill occurred Dec. 27 at 14638 Camino de la Luna in the Fairbanks Ranch area. The spill, which was caused by blockage of grease and roots, started at 8:50 a.m. and ended at 9:55 a.m. when crews from the City of San Diego Waste Water Department removed the blockage. None of the sewage was recovered so an estimated 3,375 gallons of sewage flowed into Zanja Creek that leads to the San Dieguito River. Signs warning of sewage contamination are posted 600 feet north and south at San Dieguito River outlet in Del Mar and will remain in place until samples confirm the water is safe for recreational use.
