California beach closed after Mexico sewage blasts area for weeks: reports

The closure of Imperial Beach, located in San Diego County, is said to be in place until testing shows the water is safe, according to reports.

Residents, meanwhile, have reported smelling sewage for weeks.

“The stench was crazy, just terrible,” said Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. “We’re just going into our round-robin of endless openings and closures because of the residual sewage in the river.”
