As of about 3:00, the sewer pump station was still broken and the sewage still flowing into the Monterey Bay. Estimates are that 100,000 gallons of raw sewage have gone untreated into the Sanctuary so far and cannot be cleaned up – nature will just have to take its course.
    Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency workers are working to fix the station. A plug valve failed this morning and the sewage discharged into the Bay.
    Citizens are still being asked not to send water into the system and to avoid the area between Lovers Point and Hopkins Marine Station.
