Recent sampling has determined ocean waters have exceeded state standards for bacteria at the Bel Air Bay Club at Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades and Mothers Beach in Marina Del Rey, the Department of Public Health announced Tuesday evening.

Avalon Beach at Catalina Island (50 feet east of the pier) remains under an advisory.

The department advised the public to be careful of swimming, surfing and playing in ocean waters around discharging storm drains, creeks, and rivers in the affected areas.

Recorded information on beach conditions is available 24 hours a day on the county’s beach closure hotline, 800-525-5662. Information is also available on the Department of Public Health’s website,
