Urban runoff, rather than a leaky sewage pipe, may be causing high levels of bacteria in the surf off Huntington Beach, officials said Tuesday. Experts are still examining every possible explanation for the bacterial contamination that has closed miles of shoreline and spoiled much of the summer season in Huntington Beach. But they took steps Tuesday to divert more than a million gallons a day of runoff, much of it from a downtown hotel construction site, that has been dumping into the ocean.

Health officials and politicians joined in the search for the source of pollution that now has a 4.2-mile stretch of shoreline off-limits to swimmers and surfers. Even a psychic offered to help.

A man who served 3 1/2 years in prison for a rape he did not commit helped authorities gather evidence against the five men who did, and last week all five pleaded guilty. David J. Navarro, 25, of Santa Fe Springs was convicted of the 1981 gang rape of a woman at Huntington Beach State Park on the basis of the victim's testimony. Navarro denied that he had participated. Last year the 4th District Court of Appeal found that the identification was weak and that corroborating evidence was lacking.
