Yucky Ocean Water Warning Extended to Saturday
Because rain continued to drop today, the Los Angeles County Department of Health extended an advisory that warned beach goers to stay away from swimming near discharging storm drains, creeks, and rivers. That's because "bacteria, debris, trash, and other public health hazards from city streets and mountain areas are likely to enter ocean waters though these outlets," they said.
However, the nonprofit supergroup Heal the Bay recommends just staying away from all ocean water contact for at least 72 hours after a rain fall.
This could be a dilemma for those wanting to take advantage of the predicted perfect weather this weekend, but we'll be sticking with Heal the Bay on this one.
