The sewage spill happened in the Westfield Mall parking lot off Interstate 15 in south Escondido. City workers secured the broken line and a nearby pump station by 1 p.m. Sunday. The County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and State Office of Emergency Services all responded.

The clear waters of the Colorado River flow gently through the Headgate Rock diversion dam while boaters and Jet Skiers play upstream in front of the Blue Water Resort and Casino.
