A damaged sewage line that has been a hazard since Monday afternoon ruptured again Tuesday, spilling at least 2.4 million gallons of sewage into the Los Angeles River and forcing the closure of all beaches in Long Beach, officials said.
Crews worked overnight to contain the initial spill and finally stopped it at 10 p.m. Monday, said Tonya Durrell, a spokesman for the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works.
However, the cracked pipe split again Tuesday as repairs were underway, she said.
The initial spill occurred about 2 p.m. Monday near 6th Street and Mission Road in Boyle Heights.
