The Department of Environmental Health has lifted the water contact closure for the Silver Strand and Coronado shorelines. This includes the beach-line from Silver Strand north through Coronado.

Recent water quality testing confirms that Tijuana River flows are no longer impacting these beaches. This area was recently closed to water contact due to sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entering the United States.

The ocean shoreline from the International Border to the north end of Imperial Beach will remain closed until sampling confirms these areas meet state health standards safe for water contact.

For more information on the Tijuana River, please call the U.S. International Boundary and Water Commission at 619-662-7600.

For updates on beach closure information visit or call the 24-hr. hotline at (619) 338-2073.
