Monterey Sewage Closes The Beach In P.G.

Plumbing contractor sends sewage down storm drain, public works lets drain empty to ocean.

Both the MFD and the Monterey County Health Dept. were informed by MPW last night that the diversion pump had been switched on, Ramirez says, but this morning the health department was informed by MPW that the switch was still turned off. Ramirez could not elaborate as whether the error was mechanical or human, but a statement issued by the health department earlier today said it was a “mechanical failure.”
