Kern County Department of Public Health officials tells 23ABC that the food court area at the Valley Plaza Mall is closed at this time due to sewage problems. 

Public officials said that a Public health inspector was eating lunch at the food court when a manager of one of the restaurants approached him.

The manager was telling the inspector that they were asked to stop using water by the plaza management because of sewer issues.


The department responded immediately to those claims.

They inspected, verified, and noticed sewage was backed up in the basement.

Public Health officials decided to close the food court  area after the inspection.

Access to the food court is closed at this time.

It is unknown at this time when the food court will reopen.
