In California, swimmers are being warned to stay out of the water at four Alamitos Bay beaches after 12,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into Spinnaker Bay.

In Marin County, California, the Marin Municipal Water District is closing popular roads in the Mount Tamalpais Watershed so it can replace more than a mile of aging pipeline.

On Friday, a water main break caused a six-foot sinkhole in Perry Hall, Maryland. Water was shut-off to about 20 homes, while crews worked to repair the broken line.
