OK, everyone, back into the water.

The closure of the harbor water area in Huntington Harbour imposed on Thursday because of a sewage spill was lifted today (Friday) morning.

According to the Huntington Beach Fire Department, the Marine Safety Division of the HBFD was notified by the Orange County Health Care Agency at 11:54 a.m. on Thursday that the harbor water area encompassing Anaheim Bay, Sunset Aquatic Marina, Portofino Cove, Anderson Street Marina and Admiralty Drive was to be closed.

The swimming beach at Seabridge Park near Countess Avenue was affected by the closure, so Marine Safety staff posted signs and notified beach patrons to stay out of the water in those areas.

At 11:30 a.m. Friday, the OCHCA removed the closure in those areas.
