The Imperial Beach and Silver Strand shorelines are closed to swimming because of sewage-contaminated runoff in the Tijuana River.
“Sewage-contaminated runoff in the Tijuana River has been entering the Tijuana Estuary as a result of this season’s rainfall and is still flowing,” the agency said.
“Observations today indicate northward moving ocean currents and contamination of ocean water at Imperial Beach and Silver Strand is suspected. ”
Signs warning of sewage contaminated water will remain in place until field measurements indicate the ocean water is safe for recreational use.
