Sewage spill reported in Ventura County community
Officials say multiple sewage line blockages appear to be cause.
A Ventura County community has been hit by a 20,000 gallon raw sewage spill.
Ventura County Environmental Health officials say in started on Friday, in the Lynn Ranch area of Thousand Oaks. A spill was discovered in the open space of Arroyo Conejo Canyon’s South Fork area. Thousand Oaks Public Works crews say it was the result of a hard to get to plugged line. It took about five hours to fix the issue.
But, there was another problem, and a second spill in the same area on Saturday.
It was estimated about 20,000 gallons of sewage spilled onto the ground, with some ending up in Arroyo Conejo Creek.
