by Paloma Aguirre

Authorities from the State Public Services Comission of Tijuana are reporting the sewage spill to be contained as of this morning. The break in the pipeline has been "temporarily repaired"-said Juan Manuel Tamayo sub-director of waste water services, "but we will have to eventually replace the entire pipeline in the near future to prevent this from happening again".

A beach closure remains in effect from North end Imperial Beach to Border Field State Parks on behalf of the the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health until water samples show safe levels for human contact.

A closure in Playas de Tijuana from the City of Tijuana remains in effect until the State Health Department deems it safe for recreation.
