San Diego, CA–The San Diego County Department of Environmental Health and Quality has issued a water contact closure for the ocean shoreline at Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park due to sewage-contaminated runoff along the shorelines.
Public health officials say water samples from the run-off exceed California health standards.
The water contact closure area includes all beaches from the International border to the south end of Seacoast Drive.
Signs will remain in place until ocean water sampling results meet State health standards for recreational use.
