Update, December 29, 3:50 p.m.: In case you were wondering why you were being told to stay out of the ocean at select beaches, see Exhibit A to the right. That's a flowing brown river of only Zeus-knows-what, spilling right into Main Beach in Laguna Beach. Hence, the beach closure.
Yellow signs urging people to stay out of the water are posted at Aliso Beach. The Weekly didn't see any posted at Main Beach during its drive down Pacific Coast Highway. While Aliso and Laguna are the worst hit with sewage and storm runoff, it's probably best to steer clear of the ocean altogether, at least for a few days.
You could get in, but you may not be in the best of health to celebrate the New Year.
More photos of other affected beaches after the jump.
Aliso Beach. Filled with all sorts of sewage-y goodness.
