Dana Point officials are using this weekend's sewage spill and the subsequent closure of Doheny State Beach to emphasize the need for better communication between the sewage agency and City Hall. Dana Point "is the only coastal city which doesn't have jurisdiction over sewers and water, and this incident really illustrates that is what we really need," Councilwoman Ingrid McGuire said.

County health officials banned swimming in a portion of Dana Point Harbor on Thursday after a leaking marine sewage pumping station was discovered. The leak was reported after passersby noticed a discoloration in the water about 10:30 a.m. Officials immediately closed the pump station, which is used by boaters to dispose of untreated sewage, said Monica Mazur, a spokeswoman for the county Health Care Agency.

The Orange County Grand Jury on Wednesday called for improved testing for waterways contaminated by urban runoff, better public notification of health hazards and the creation of task forces to encourage protection of each regional watershed. Though acknowledging that the county has worked to address urban runoff, "the consensus is that it's not necessarily solving the problem," said grand jury member Ronald Burczewski.

A fertilizer truck delivering piles of recycled sewage to homeowners? That may sound far-fetched to some people, but not to Bill Becker, general manager of the Southeast Regional Reclamation Authority. Becker is considering what could happen as a result of a pilot program now being conducted by the 12 member districts of the reclamation authority and the Aliso Water Management Agency.

Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, part of which has been closed to surfers and swimmers for almost a week because of a 500,000-gallon spill of raw sewage, was reopened Wednesday afternoon by county health officials. The waters were found free of contaminants after a series of tests, according to Steven K. Wong, assistant director of the county Health Care Agency's environmental health division.

The Link family has a problem that's common in coastal Southern California. Three years after Lowell and Penny Link bought their dream home on a Dana Point hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, they found a new roofline poking skyward between their living room window and the blue water. "We bought for location and we bought for view," said Lowell Link, 58, a San Clemente-based real estate agent. "Now all we have is location."

Sewage leaks forced closure of two Orange County beaches Monday morning, frustrating officials who have dealt with a series of similar spills since midsummer. The latest closures, near Salt Creek and at Doheny State Beach, were ordered because "the water is contaminated with sewage," said Larry Honeybourne, program chief for the county Health Care Agency's water quality section. "Once there's sewage in the system, that's it: The beach is closed."
