Rebecca Shipe in the Daily Bruin: UCLA researchers to study effects of wastewater spill in Santa Monica Bay

UCLA researchers tested water for environmental hazards affecting ocean life following a recent sewage spill in the Santa Monica bay. The 17 million gallons of sewage spewed from the emergency-use pipe is only a small fraction of the treated wastewater that is normally released into the ocean, said Rebecca Shipe, an adjunct associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology.
