SAN DIEGO -- San Diego County officials announced two new beach advisories and one beach closure Friday while several others remained in effect heading into the weekend.

Unhealthy bacteria levels in the water triggered advisories issued Friday along Bayside Park at J. Street in Chula Vista and Shoreline Park at Shelter Island.

Meanwhile, a beach closure was issued for the shoreline between the U.S.-Mexico border and the north end of the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge due to sewage-contaminated water.

"It’s a crying shame. This is a federal reserve right here it should not be full of sewage," said Paul Wilson who lives along Seacoast Drive in Imperial beach where the closures began.

Advisories issued Wednesday at Fiesta Island, La Jolla Cove and Mission Bay's Leisure Lagoon remained in effect, as did an advisory issued last month at Mission Bay's North Cove.
