Imperial Beach’s entire shoreline has been closed to swimmers after sewage-contaminated runoff has flowed into California from Mexico’s Tijuana River.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the San Diego County Department of Environment Health issued the order Sunday, expanding the closure that has been in place for months for a part of the coast.
Officials say more than 110 million gallons (416 million liters) of toxic stormwater has flowed north from Mexico since April.
The closure will be in place until testing shows the water is safe.
