TEST RESULTS RELEASED ON TUESDAY CONTINUE TO SHOW ELEVATED LEVELS OF BACTERIA ON VENICE BEACH KEEPING THE BEACH WATERS CLOSED TO SWIMMING AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES.  IT’S BEEN TWO WEEKS SINCE HIGH LEVELS OF FECAL COLIFORM WERE DISCOVERED IN WEEKLY TESTING AT THE BEACH, BUT OFFICIALS STILL DO NOT KNOW THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM.  ISSUES HAVE ARISEN IN THE PAST FROM STORM WATER RUNOFF, BUT IT HASN’T RAINED APPRECIATIVELY HERE IN OVER A MONTH AND A HALF.  OFFICIALS ARE LOOKING AT THE CITY’S STORM WATER SYSTEM TO SEE IF THERE’S A LEAK THAT HAS GONE UNDETECTED, BUT THEY SAY THEY’RE REACHING FOR STRAWS.  FURTHER TESTS OF THE WATER WILL BE CONDUCTED TOMORROW WITH THE RESULTS RELEASED ON FRIDAY.
