HUNTINGTON BEACH A 3,600-gallon sewage spill prompted county environmental health officials to close a section of the harbor area, the OC Health Agency said in a statement Saturday, Sept. 30.

The agency’s Environmental Health division said the Sunset Aquatic Marina and Portofino Cove were closed to swimming and diving due to the spill, which occurred on Friday. Sept. 29 due to blockage in a sewer main owned by the city of Anaheim.

The area will remain closed to ocean water contact sports until the water quality tests meet acceptable standards, the statement said.
