[ARCHIVED] Public Health Advisory: Potential Runoff/Ocean Water Contamination

Following the recent rainfall, Ventura County Public Health has issued an advisory warning the public to avoid contact with storm water runoff and ocean water at Ventura County beaches for 72 hours after all rainfall has ended.

There is a potential for storm water runoff to carry disease causing bacteria to the beaches and into the ocean water. Any items that may have come in contact with runoff or ocean water should also be avoided. If contact occurs, wash thoroughly with soap and water. Any shellfish on or from Ventura County beaches may have also been exposed to contamination and should not be eaten.
