Five water quality advisories have been issued that affect Sunset Cliffs, Ocean Beach and Mission Bay. The advisories have been issued by the County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health. (See their website.)

All of the advisories – which advise that humans avoid any water contact in the area – are due to bacterial levels exceeding health standards. See the map included with this article; the yellow balloons are the advisory areas.

Two of the advisories are for Sunset Cliffs:

Sunset Cliffs –  Cable St. (south end) – Beachline adjacent to access stairs; advisory in effect since July 18, 2019; Bacteria levels may exceed health standards. Avoid water contact in the advisory area.

One advisory for Ocean Beach:

Ocean Beach – OB Pier to 300 feet South; in effect since: July 18, 2019; Bacteria levels may exceed health standards. Avoid water contact in the advisory area.

Finally, two of the advisories are for Mission Bay:

Mission Bay – Bonita Cove, swim area; advisory in effect since: July 17, 2019. Bacteria levels may exceed health standards. Avoid water contact in the advisory area.
