On Saturday, the Department of Environmental Health issued a water contact closure for the ocean shoreline at Border Field Park and the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge to the south end of Seacoast Drive due to sewage-contaminated flows from the Tijuana River entering the United States. 

Signs will remain in place until sample results indicate the ocean water is safe for recreational use.
