The County of San Diego Dept of Environment Health has once again issued what’s become the standard post-rain beach closure notice. Closures were extended yesterday through the north end of Coronado. Testing station areas include Border Field State Park, Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge, Imperial Beach, Silver Strand, and Coronado shorelines.

As the rain fills the Tijuana River, its sewage-contaminated storm water runoff pollutes the ocean. Beachgoers are advised to avoid water contact in the closure area. The DEH reminds everyone to “check in before you get in.”
