Graphic from County of San Diego Water Quality Program website.

The County’s water quality program has issued a stunning number of advisories for Ocean Beach and Point Loma.

Count them – there’s five! And all because “Bacteria levels may exceed health standards,” and people are cautioned to “Avoid water contact in the advisory area.”

Here they are, verbatim:
