Newport Beach beaches remain off limits after sewage spill

A section of ocean water in the Newport Bay area of Newport Beach remained off limits Monday due to a sewage spill.

The closure affects the area on either side of the Aloha Drive Bridge. According to the Orange County Health Care Agency, the closure is due to a 140-gallon sewage spill caused by a break in a sewage line.

"The affected ocean water area will remain closed to ocean water- contact sports for a minimum of three days and until the results of follow-up water quality monitoring meet acceptable standards," health officials said.

The bridge is between Bayside Drive and Linda Isle.
