Officials lifted a water contact closure Sunday for the shoreline at Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park.

Ocean water samples now meet state health standards, according to the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health and Quality.

The closure, issued Friday, included all beaches from the border to the south end of Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach.

Contact closure signs were scheduled to be removed Sunday, officials said.
