Angel Island State Park Closed to the Public this Weekend Due to Waste Water Overflow
ANGEL ISLAND, Calif.—California State Parks is closing Angel Island State Park to the public this Saturday and Sunday (December 20-21), due to a waste water system overflow in the park. The overflow is treated water, and is being linked to the weather of the past several days, which brought down several inches of rain.
Parks staff found the overflow this morning, and determined that the closure this weekend is needed to allow the system to recover from an excess of water from the recent storms. The overflow is being re-routed and is not in danger of flowing into the surrounding bay.
Angel Island State Park is expected to remain closed this weekend, or until Parks staff determine the water system is functioning properly again. Ferry service has been cancelled this weekend to the Park.
