Toxic bacterial counts caused by ongoing sewage spills dipped dramatically Wednesday, prompting San Diego County health authorities to say that they may lift a 20-mile quarantine of area coastline as early as Friday morning. For the first time since the rupture of a massive sewage outfall pipe Feb. 2, bacterial readings fell below the legal limit, except at the tip of the Point Loma Peninsula, said Ruth Covill, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Department of Health Services.

San Diego County health workers Monday cordoned off about 300 feet of shoreline at the foot of Grand Avenue in Pacific Beach after a clogged pipeline released about 1,000 gallons of sewage into the sea. County health officials said the spill, which took place at 8:35 a.m., occurred when the pipe became clogged with sludge, backing up the flow and releasing it out a manhole. John Melbourne, public health engineer, said health workers believed either grease or sand jammed the pipe.

San Diego County health officials said Friday that a 56-year-old man has died of the flu, and that the deaths of two teenagers are being investigated as possibly caused by the flu. The three cases are not related. Dr. Nancy Bowen, the county's public health officer, said the man, who had "underlying health problems," is the first confirmed case of a local flu fatality this year.
