Los Angeles County Issues Bacteria Warnings to Beaches

4 Los Angeles County beaches remain under high bacteria warning

The county has issued two new bacteria warnings to beaches along the Pacific and San Pedro Bay, and one along the Russian River.

While only the beaches off Santa Monica, Playa del inlet, Torrance Harbor and Ventura Harbor near Ventura are getting the most attention, there are more than 60 beaches in Los Angeles County that fall under the county’s highest bacteria warning.

These include beaches in Montecito, Manhattan Beach, Newport Coast, Topanga, and Playa del Rey.

A full list of the beaches that have been given the warning includes:

Playa Del Rey Beach

Ocean Beach


Ocean View Beach

Rancho Santa Margarita

Ocean Harbor Beach

Laguna Beach

Rancho Santa Margarita

Santa Monica

Santa Monica Pier

Santa Monica Bluffs

Torrance Beach

Ventura Harbor

Playa Del Rey Beach, in Los Angeles, is the only beach in the county where the water has not been taken up by bacteria.

This beach has been a particular concern with bacteria on a number of levels, according to the county’s public health division. The county issued its most elevated bacteria warning this month along with the beaches off Ventura Harbor and Santa Monica and on the Russian River.

The warning comes on the heels of an even higher warning issued earlier this month.

At the time, the county said that the bacteria were showing up on a new kind of bacteria called a vibrio, which is more resistant to chlorine and other cleaning agents.

The agency believes that people may have exposed themselves to the bacteria and have become infected.

There are two ways that bacteria can get onto the beach:

By walking on the sand and touching it with skin or clothing that comes in contact with the bacteria.

By bathing in the surf and taking a dip in the water.

This means that if you see a sign on the beach indicating that there are health hazards, you should avoid stepping on the sand, surfing in the ocean, or going to the beach without the proper health precautions.
