The City Health Officer, Dr. Anissa Davis, has lifted the closure order on the final two swimming areas at Alamitos Bay. Mother’s Beach and 56th Place were re-opened this afternoon following consecutive lab results showing the water to be within State water quality standards. Alamitos Bay was closed for recreational water contact after a sewage spill on Monday, June 26. The cause of the spill is still under investigation.
