Sewage Spill - Avoid Doheny for a while…

I read on the news, and heard from a couple of you guys, that there was a pretty big sewage spill that got dumped into the Tijeras Creek that sometimes flows into Doheny State beach. It sounds like the spill happened a couple of days ago…but I am sure that the closure will be around for a bit.

This is what I read on the Orange County Local News…

“A 24-inch iron sewage line belonging to the Santa Margarita Water District ruptured Tuesday afternoon and sent some 500,000 gallons of untreated sewage into Tijeras Creek, which empties into the ocean at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.”

500,000 gallons…man that is just nasty, talk about poo water.

Speaking of that…check out this shirt…I think that Kevin’s since of humor fits pretty well with the closure...and hits a little close to home at the same time.

Well guys, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but these type of infrastructure failures are only going to get worse.

Anyone notice the roads getting worse? School layoffs? It's all related. The current level of the economy, regardless of the causes, cannot support required repair & maintenance costs.

Think Mexico - a poor country that just doesn't have the money to get things done, so thing are left to rot.
