Seal Beach Ocean Water Closure

Press Release

(Santa Ana, CA) – The OC Health Care Agency, Environmental Health, has closed the open coastal area from the San Gabriel River jetty to the Anaheim Bay breakwater in Seal Beach due to the occurrence of multiple sewage spills that were caused by weather-impacted surges on sewer mains in areas of Los Angeles County that border Orange County. Out of an abundance of caution, the affected ocean water area will remain closed to swimming, surfing, and diving until the results of follow-up water quality monitoring meet acceptable standards.

For information regarding Orange County ocean, bay, or harbor postings and closures, please call (714) 433-6400 or visit our Web site at To report a sewage spill, please call (714) 433-6419.
