Oceangoers can now get into the water along much of the Imperial Beach shoreline, officials announced Sunday.
The stretch of beach that has been reopened is from the south end of Seacoast Drive to Carnation Avenue, officials said.
The Department of Environmental Health lifted the water contact closure that has been in place for several days after sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entered the ocean off the U.S. coastline.
Although recent testing by the DEH confirmed that the Tijuana River flows are no longer impacting the northern stretch off Imperial Beach, the agency said Sunday that ocean shoreline from the International Border to the south end of Seacoast Drive will remain closed until sampling confirms the areas safe.
