Water Contact Closure Expanded to Silver Strand

A water contact closure has been issued for the Silver Strand to up Avenida Lunar, expanded from an existing closure from the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Imperial Beach shorelines.

The water is contaminated by sewage runoff from the Tijuana River that has been entering the Tijuana Estuary from this season’s rainfall.

Sample results received Friday show ocean currents moving northward, polluting the Silver Strand beaches.

Sewage contaminated water signs will remain in place until field instruments indicate the ocean water is safe for recreational use.
