San Diego, CA–The San Diego County Department of Environmental Health and Quality has issued beach management actions for the County’s coastal beaches.
The water contact closure that was previously in place for the Tijuana Slough and part of the Imperial Beach shoreline is being extended to include the entire Imperial Beach shoreline. The Tijuana River is flowing and reaching recreational waters. Beachgoers are advised that the ocean water contains sewage and may cause illness. Ocean waters will remain closed until sampling and field observations confirm these areas are safe for water contact.
An advisory was issued for Silver Strand State Beach due to high levels of bacteria in the water. Beachgoers are advised that the levels have exceeded State health standards and may cause illness.
Advisories have also been issued for the Children’s Pool in La Jolla, La Jolla Cove Beachline, Ocean Beach-Dog Beach, San Diego Bay- Coronado Tidelands Park Shoreline, and the Oceanside San Luis Rey River. Beachgoers are advised that bacteria levels at these locations have exceeded State health standards and may cause illness.
The ocean shoreline from the International Border through the Imperial shoreline will remain closed until sampling confirms these areas are safe for water contact.
