As a reminder, individuals planning to spend their Memorial Day weekend at the beach should exercise caution. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has advised against swimming, surfing, and playing in ocean waters at five local beaches due to high bacteria levels. These beaches include Santa Monica Canyon Creek at Will Rogers State Beach, Mother Beach in Marina Del Rey, Malibu Lagoon at Surfrider Beach, Santa Monica Pier, and Inner Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro.

Recent testing revealed that bacterial levels exceeded health standards at these locations. However, the department has removed earlier warnings for the Temescal Canyon storm drain at Will Rogers State Beach and the Pico-Kenter storm drain at Santa Monica State Beach near Santa Monica South Tower 20 as recent samples found water quality levels within state standards.

To ensure your safety while enjoying the beach this Memorial Day weekend, it’s important to stay informed about current conditions. You can check beach closures 24 hours a day on the county’s beach closure hotline at 1-800-525-5662 or visit their website for additional information and a map of impacted locations.
