Contamination Closes Imperial Beach



    Steven Luke

    The San Diego Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has closed Imperial Beach because of sewage runoff.

    Contaminated water from the Tijuana River has entered the nearby estuary, and as a result the department suspects it has contaminated IB ocean water. The water is flowing north and because of rainfall could continue to flow throughout the day, according to the DEH.

    DEH will monitor the levels and will determine when the ocean water is safe for recreational use.
