The City of Laguna Beach, in coordination with other Federal, State, and local agencies, continues to closely monitor and anticipate impacts from the 126,000-gallon oil spill impacting coastal Orange County.
Therefore, effective tonight, Sunday, October 3, 2021, at 9:00 p.m., all Laguna Beach City Beaches will CLOSE to the public. The City is asking that all individuals remain clear of the beach and pay close attention to any closure or warning signs posted at or near beach areas.
Though the spill has not yet reached the shoreline of Laguna Beach, Laguna Beach Marine Safety, Fire, Public Works, and Police personnel are anticipating this may happen and are ready to respond. Beach closures are needed to protect the health and safety of the public and to allow contractors to begin oil cleanup if such an event occurs.
