    Dec. 17: Don't Go In The Water For 72 Hrs; LB Issues Post-Rainstorm Beach Advisory

    (December 17, 2002) -- Following the heavy rain of the past few days, LB's Health Officer, Dr. Darryl M. Sexton, has issued an advisory for beaches in the City of LB:

    "It is recommended to avoid all ocean water contact for at least 72 hours after rainfall, especially at storm drain outlets, river mouths, streams, and lagoons."

    The release from the City's Dept. of Health and Human Services notes that after any significant rainfall (> 0.10"), high levels of bacteria from storm drains, rivers and polluted runoff enter the ocean.

    It adds that the Dept. of Health and Human Services Water Quality Program will continue conducting water quality testing to monitor the bacteriological content of contamination in beach waters and will issue additional advisories as necessary.

    It adds that people should always pay particular attention to any warning signs posted at the beach for their safety.
