A pollution alert issued for beaches just north of the U.S-Mexico border following last week’s rains was lifted Monday.

Follow-up testing determined that the surf around the international line no longer was being adversely affected by storm-driven contamination carried out of Baja California in the Tijuana River, according to the county Department of Environmental Health.

A water-contact warning in the area had gone into effect Friday, following extensive showers across the region, and was expanded Sunday to encompass the entire shoreline of Imperial Beach.
