SANTA CLARITA, Calif. — Environmental groups say Southern California’s Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park is polluting the Santa Clara River with contaminated water and trash that flows to the ocean.

Santa Monica Baykeeper, Wishtoyo Foundation and Friends of the Santa Clara River sent a letter to the Santa Clarita Valley area theme park saying wildlife and swimmers are at risk.

The Los Angeles Times says Magic Mountain officials say in a statement that it wants to improve the storm water process.

The environmentalists say a lawsuit will be filed within 60 days if Magic Mountain doesn’t significantly reduce pollution entering the Santa Clara River, which flows 45 miles downstream from the park before reaching the sea in Ventura County.
