Access to Santa Ana River restored, County and City Officials provide safety reminders

After consulting with the Regional Water Quality Control Board and our Public Health Department, the Department of Environmental Health is recommending to the City of Jurupa Valley that the temporary closure of access to the Santa Ana River be lifted.

The City of Jurupa Valley will reopen all access points into the Santa Ana River effective Thursday, Aug. 15.

The public should be wary that natural waterways do not have the same level of cleanliness as a public swimming pool which has filtration and disinfection safeguards.

Rivers are not regularly tested for the presence of bacteria, as they are naturally flowing bodies of water and testing only provides a snapshot in time.  The public should be careful not to ingest the water, thoroughly wash hands after contact, and not leave behind trash or use the river area as a restroom.
