SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An island park in the San Francisco Bay will close temporarily because of a water system malfunction following recent heavy rains.

California State Parks is closing Angel Island State Park to the public Saturday and Sunday due to a waste water system overflow in the park. The overflow, which is treated water, was discovered Thursday.

State parks officials say the park closure is needed to allow the system to recover from excess water from the recent storms. Officials say the overflow is being re-routed and is not in danger of flowing into the surrounding bay.

Ferry service to the park has been cancelled during the closure.
