    The Wrath Of El Niño Continues

    Reports have been that the conditions still suck pretty much everywhere.

    Veteran’s Park apparently was diveable, but the visibility was said to be about five to 10 feet.

    Sunday services were doomed to be dry – well, as far as diving went.

    I was suppose to meet up with Military Bob to exchange Budweiser for the navigation spool that I won at the Divevets Christmas party – too bad I couldn’t find it.

    We walked to the Cove…

    Waves pound the Cove.

    The Cove was pretty foamy with some good waves crashing on shore.

    Looks like there may even be some red tide in the mix.

    The Point put on a spectacular show.

    The Point was being hit with some pretty big waves.

    The group walked up towards the Catalina Room…

    I think some of us forgot that at one time we actually dove here.

    Some of us, including me, haven’t been in the water at all this year.

    We proceeded to hold Not So New Chris’ going away party – too bad he’s already gone.

    100,000 Gallons Of Sewer Crap Closes Beach Access To Lunada Bay

    Thanks to a post on Divevets…

    Swimmers and surfers are advised to avoid ocean water in Lunada Bay

    Beach Closed

    LOS ANGELES - Closure signs have been posted at the access points to Lunada Bay in Palos Verdes Estates due to a sewage spill. Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials were notified this afternoon that approximately 100,000 gallons of sewage entered the intersection of Via Rivera and Paseo Lunado, resulting in effluence flowing into Lunada Bay.

    The advisory will be in effect for at least 72 hours, pending test results that measure the bacteria level in the ocean water. Water samples were taken this afternoon.

    “We are asking people to avoid entering, swimming, or surfing in the ocean in and around Lunada Bay,” said Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health and County Health Officer. “Our first priority is to protect the health and safety of the people who may visit the bay. Once we determine bacteria levels in the water have returned to normal, closure signs will be removed.”

    The Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County stopped the flow of sewage and is now in the process of cleaning up the site. It is also involved in the repair of the collapsed sewage pipe that led to the spill. Public Health was notified by the Sanitation Districts today around 3:00 p.m. regarding the discharge.

    Recorded information on beach conditions is available around the clock on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Ocean Water Quality Hotline at 1-800-525-5662 and online at www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/beach.

    The original warning is here.
