Sewage Alert: Pollution Warning Posted for Silver Strand

Authorities issued an ocean-pollution warning for the Silver Strand due to an influx of storm-driven sewage out of the Tijuana River.

Northward-drifting wastewater sent into the sea by this week's rains prompted the alert, which extended an existing contamination advisory off the coast of the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Imperial Beach, according to the county Department of Environmental Health.

Signs warning of sewage-contaminated surf will remain in place along the stretch of shoreline in southern Coronado until follow-up tests assure the area safe again for recreational use.
