Nov. 13, 2017
IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — San Diego County authorities have lifted a closure of the Imperial Beach shoreline that was impacted by sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entering the United States.
The Department of Environmental Health announced the action Sunday afternoon following tests that found water quality now meets California health standards.
The shoreline from the south end of Imperial Beach to the international border will remain closed until sampling shows that area is safe.
