San Diego County continues its Water Quality Advisory for OB’s Dog Beach for the fourth day. The advisory – due to high bacterial levels – extends from the San Diego River outlet to 300 yards south.

Ocean goers are urged to avoid water contact in the advisory area as bacteria levels may exceed health standards. And that goes for dogs and pets, too.

The advisory for Dog Beach has been in effect since Tuesday, August 13, 2019.

Here is what the County’s Beach & Bay Water Quality Program website states:

Bacterial exceedance Advisories are issued when monitoring (laboratory analysis) reveals ocean or bay water quality does not meet State health standards due to high bacterial levels. DEH advises beach users to avoid water contact at beaches posted with these white advisory signs.

There’s also an Advisory for Mission Bay – the Santa Clara Cove – swim area – for the same reasons: bacteria levels may exceed health standards. It’s been in effect since August 14, 2019. People are advised to avoid water contact in that advisory area as well.
