The county’s Department of Environmental Health posted a no-swimming advisory today from Imperial Beach south to the U.S.-Mexico border.

The reason: “Suspected contamination from an unknown source.”

The ocean shoreline along the border is the subject of frequent closures during rainy winter months, as rainfall in Mexico sweeps sewage-contaminated runoff into the Pacific. Summer closures or advisories are rare.
