Long Beach Health Officials today re-opened the final section of open coastal beaches, west of 5th Place.  Lab results received Wednesday afternoon indicated bacterial levels in this area are within state standards.  Open coastal beaches were initially closed following a sewage spill in the City of San Gabriel on September 15. Alamitos Bay and Colorado Lagoon were not impacted by the spill. The Health Department will continue with its weekly beach water monitoring program.  For the latest status on Long Beach recreational beach water quality, call the Water Hotline at 562.570.4199 or visit http://bit.ly/LBWaterQuality.
