“The Tijuana River Mouth Is Closed!”



The Tijuana River no longer flows into the ocean! Recent high tides, big waves and powerful near shore currents combined to completely seal the river mouth with sand. Now one can easily walk by where the river once ran. The water has been halted several hundred feet short of the Pacific Ocean. It is believed that a similar condition existed after the great storm of 1983. Employees of the U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service, who were surveying the area, said the prospect of reopening the slough by mechanical means was being considered.
