On May 31, 2018 at approximately 12 pm, a break in a sewer line located at the Pebbly Beach Lift Station occurred in the City of Avalon.  Emergency repairs were undertaken immediately. 

The repairs to the sewer line have been completed. The temporary bypass is working as expected, and is being monitored 24 hours a day until the next phase of repair occurs, which is anticipated this upcoming week.

Both salt water and fresh water systems have resumed normal service throughout Avalon.

Begining at 7:45 PM on 6/1 Fresh water and salt water services are being turned back on. 
It can take a few hours for the entire system to recharge and pressurize.

During this process to pressurize this system it is standard practice to bleed off air out of the lines by discharging some water from the lines. Water on the streets is not part of any spill and is not of concern.

Pebbly Beach Road is open to all vehicles.
Please be aware of the construction zone and drive appropriately.

All beaches have tested clean and are open for use. 
The Catalina Island Medical Center has provided a guide for anyone concerned with health affects due to exposure.

LA County Public Health will continue to monitor the ocean water quality per standard guidelines and requirements.
