Some Beaches Closed After Water Samples Show High Bacteria Levels
Updated On: Mar 06 2014 07:44:25 PM CST
Santa Barbara County Environmental Health Services released their beach status report Thursday.
Carpinteria State Beach, Sands Beach at Coal Oil Point, Arroyo Burro Beach, East Beach at Mission Creek and Hope Ranch Beach all have warning statuses.
That means beach-goers need to stay at least 50 yards away from creek mouths and storms drains.
Residents should avoid creek and lagoon water at all times because of the high bacteria levels.
Gaviota State Beach is closed after last weekend's storm damaged parts of the beach.
