County issues water contact warning for Silver Strand State Beach, lifts warning for Tidelands Park

San Diego County officials on Thursday advised the public to avoid the ocean at Silver Strand State Beach and lifted a warning for Tidelands Park in Coronado.

Officials said bacteria levels in the ocean at Silver Strand State Beach near Coronado Cays Park exceeded state health standards and could cause illness. The issue stems from sewage that flows into the region from the Tijuana River.

Water quality samples at Tidelands Park, however, meet state health standards, allowing officials to lift a warning that was previously issued, they said.

Similar warnings remained in effect for La Jolla Cove, North Cove Beach in Mission Bay and Children’s Pool in La Jolla.

The latest announcement came after officials lifted an advisory for the Imperial Beach shoreline on Tuesday. However, the shoreline from the U.S.-Mexico border to the southern end of Seacoast Drive remain closed.

For updates on beach advisory and closure information visit or call the 24-hour hotline at (619) 338-2073.
