Due to current rainfall, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health advises beach users to avoid all water contact, especially near discharging storm drains, creeks, and rivers due to potentially higher bacteria levels in these areas.

This advisory will be in effect until at least Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 1:00 am.

This advisory may be extended depending on further rainfall.
