What a Local Sewage Spill Actually Looks Like

A sewage spill dumped a bunch of human waste into a creek in East County, but only the one family to specifically complain had a cleanup visit from the county. The spill started when a 12-inch plastic pipe owned by the county dislodged from a sewer main during a February storm and began emptying sewage into Los Coches Creek, in an unincorporated part of the county near El Cajon.
