Leadbetter Beach in Santa Barbara is closed because of a sewage spill.
Santa Barbara city officials say approximately 6,600 gallons of untreated sewage spilled in the 1100 block of Luneta Plaza.
The sewage flowed into a storm drain that discharges at Leadbetter Beach.
People are warned to stay out of the water until tests show it is safe again for recreational use.
In addition, city officials say the public should wait at least 10 days to harvest shellfish in the affected area.
Shellfish are filter feeders and those from contaminated waters represent an elevated risk of disease if consumed.
