La Mesa has agreed to a $801,000 fine because of a storm three years ago that resulted in a massive sewage spill, according to U-T San Diego.
The spill caused more than a million gallons of untreated waste to spill into waterways that lead to San Diego Bay and the San Diego River, according to findings by the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board.
Almost $400,000 of the fine will be set aside, according to the report, if the city completes an environmental restoration project.
The board found that La Mesa had not adequately prepared for dealing with runoff from major storms.
