The San Diego County Department of Environmental Health and Quality lifted bacteria advisories Sept. 29 for the water at three beaches in the La Jolla area.

The advisories for La Jolla Shores at El Paseo Grande, Windansea at Palomar Avenue and Neptune Place, and Tourmaline Surfing Park at the Pacific Beach/La Jolla border had been issued the day before but were canceled after water quality samples met state health standards, the county said.

In an advisory, bacteria levels have exceeded state standards and may cause illness, according to DEHQ. People are cautioned to avoid contact with the water.

Elsewhere in La Jolla, ongoing advisories remain in effect at The Cove and the Children’s Pool.
