Dockweiler State Beach remained closed Thursday after possible medical waste, including hypodermic needles, was found along the shoreline.
Tampon applicators and condoms were found on the beach Wednesday between Ballona Creek and Grand Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Public Health Department. Warning signs were posted after water sample results showed bacteria levels exceeded state standards.
The beach will be closed until further notice.
County spokeswoman Tonya Durrell told reporters the waste was not toxic and “does not pose a threat to the public.”
