Closure Lifted for South County Beaches

Testing on Thursday confirms water quality at South County beaches meets State health standards following recent Tijuana River flows.

Closure Lifted for South County Beaches

The San Diego County Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has lifted the water contact closure for the ocean shoreline at the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park. This includes the beach-line from the south end of Seacoast Drive to the International Border. 

Recent water quality testing conducted by DEH confirms that Tijuana River flows are no longer impacting these beaches. 

This area was recently closed to water contact due to sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entering the United States.
