Beaches in Ocean City back open after sewage leak

    Beaches from Stenton Place to Delancey Place in Ocean City are back open Tuesday after being closed for a sewage leak.

    NBC10 reports swimmers were told to get out of the water Monday after a sewer overflowed into the street around the beaches. Some of the sewage flowed through a storm drain and into the ocean, according to NBC10.

    Water quality test results conducted by the Cape May County Health Department came back clean Tuesday, prompting officials to reopen the beaches.

    NBC10 reports the sewage overflow was the result of a grease blockage.
