San Diego County Reopens Border Beaches Closed Since Nov.

Border beaches closed since November because of sewage contamination have been reopened after San Diego County health officials determined they are safe.

County environmental health spokesman Clay Clifton says measurements taken at the mouth of the Tijuana River indicate the water is safe for recreational use.

The beaches were closed after tests showed high levels of bacteria following a Nov. 30 rainstorm. Bacteria levels exceeded state standards until Wednesday, and San Diego authorities removed warning signs.
