Buccaneer Beach in Oceanside and South Ponto State Beach near the Batiquitos Lagoon outlet have been closed due to a sewage spill.
The state’s underwater parks are getting their once-a-decade review, which shows the system is working just as researchers hoped it would.
Since the ordinance was written into law last year, more than 500 sidewalk vending permits have been issued to local vendors.
San Diego Bay and Sweetwater Bay's Morrison Pond reopened for public use Tuesday following water quality testing samples that met state standards, according to the county's Department of Environmental Health and Quality.
Authorities say a sensor malfunction caused pumps to shut down for about a half-hour, backing up wastewater that spilled in areas leading to the bay.
The closure extends from the international border to the south end of Imperial Beach and extends a water contact closure previously in place for the Tijuana Slough shoreline.
Urban runoff may contain large amounts of bacteria from a variety of sources, including animal waste, soil and decomposing vegetation, officials said.
The water contact closure previously in place for the Tijuana Slough shoreline was extended north, as the Tijuana River is flowing and reaching recreational waters, officials said.
Ocean Beach may soon be torn down and fully rebuilt, at a cost of tens of millions of dollars.
The heat wave continues to sear San Diego County and many are finding some relief at the beach, but even there temperatures are above average.
