The City of San Gabriel has started clean up from a sewage blockage that led to waste backing up into people’s homes on Wednesday.

The blockage occurred on South Arroyo Drive and some parts of Santa Anita Street. Santa Anita Street reopened late last night, said Jonathan Fu, public information officer for San Gabriel. Vista Cove and several other apartment complexes were affected, but the city is still doing outreach to find other affected homes.

Residents who need to contact the city about this or who want updates should visit this webpage.
