Closures Issued for South County Beaches

The County Environmental Health Department has issued a water contact closure for the ocean shorelines at the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park due to sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entering the United States. 

The closure area includes the beach-line from the south end of Seacoast Drive to the International Border. Closure signs will remain in place until sample results indicate the ocean water is safe for recreational use.
