Effective October 22, 2019 at 8:30am, the County’s Department of Environmental Health has issued a water quality Advisory for San Diego River outlet – Dog Beach – in Ocean Beach.

The County says humans [we add “and dogs”] should avoid water contact in the advisory area, as bacteria levels may exceed health standards.

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. The County advises beach users to avoid water contact at beaches posted with these white advisory signs.

The Advisory is in effect from the San Diego River outlet to 300 feet south.

From the DEH:

The Department of Environmental Health runs a Mobile Web Application. This webpage is always up to date, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With this App, and the incorporation of Facebook and Twitter, DEH delivers real-time beach water quality status updates to computers and mobile devices of nearly all types.
