MIAMI (CBSMiami) – There’s a water warning for part of Biscayne Bay after a massive sewage spill.

A contractor broke a 16-inch sewer line resulting in a nearly 10,000-gallon sewer spill at 3005 NE Second Ave.  The spill traveled through storm drains leading to the Intracoastal Waterway.

Now there’s a precautionary advisory to avoid recreational water activities including swimming, fishing and boating.

  • The Venetian Causeway to the south
  • The shoreline to the west

The advisory remains in effect until two consecutive days of clear water testing occur.
