Original post:

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has issued a beach closure notice for several beaches, including Rancho Palos Verdes Beach in the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, due to the release of approximately 2-4 million gallons of untreated sewage into the Dominguez Channel, which terminates into the Los Angeles Harbor at the Port of Los Angeles.

The release may affect recreational water areas around the following beaches:

  • Cabrillo Beach
  • Point Fermin Beach
  • White Point Park Beach
  • Royal Palm State Beach
  • Rancho Palos Verdes Beach (Please note that the closure extends to the entire shoreline southeast of Rancho Palos Verdes Beach, below the Ocean Trails Reserve.)

Closure signs will also be posted in these areas. Public Health officials are advising residents to avoid contact with ocean water in the affected areas. Water quality samples will be collected by Public Health and the Los Angeles City Sanitation District. The affected beaches will remain closed until water samples are confirmed to have bacteria levels within State standards. Beach users are advised to stay out of the water until the advisory is removed.

Recorded information on beach conditions is available 24-hours a day on the County's beach advisory hotline: 1-800-525-5662. Information is also available online at http://www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/beach/.
