A general rain advisory has been lifted for the coastal waters of San Diego County, but a handful of water contact closures remain after last week’s rain, health officials said Sunday.
The rain advisory was issued due to contamination by urban runoff, and applied to the area of San Onofre State Beach south to Border Field, including Mission Bay and San Diego Bay, according to the county Department of Environmental Health and Quality.
Water contact closures have been issued for the following locations due to bacteria levels exceeding health standards:
- Imperial Beach Shorelines, ocean shoreline from the south end of Seacoast Drive to Carnation Avenue
- Silver Strand Shoreline, ocean shoreline from Carnation to Avenida Lunar
- Tijuana Slough Shoreline, ocean shoreline from U.S./Mexico border, including Border Field State Park and the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge
Additionally, water contact advisories have been issued for the following locations due to bacteria levels exceeding health standards:
- Mission Bay, North Cove
- La Jolla, Cove Beachline
- La Jolla, Children’s Pool
- La Jolla, Avenida De La Playa
- Tourmaline Surf Park, Pacific Beach
