The ocean at Woods Cove between Center and Moss streets about a mile south of the center of the famed beach resort of Laguna Beach was marked off- limits by the OC Health Care Agency, which says the stretch will remain closed for at least three days.
As the mercury soared to 90 degrees in Laguna Beach Monday — and was expected to top 100 Tuesday — anyone seeking relief from the heat will have to find a different spot for a dip in the cooling ocean water.
Health officials said a blockage in a sewer line owned by the city of Laguna Beach caused the spill.
The water will remain off limits until tests show bacteria levels that meet state health standards.
