County Water Quality Alert issued after Legionnaires’ Disease alert

County Water Quality Alert issued after Legionnaires' Disease alert

4 Los Angeles County beaches remain under high bacteria warning as a statewide water quality alert remains in effect.

The county issued the alert earlier this month after the state health department found six cases of Legionnaires’ disease over the last two years.

Four deaths have been linked to the outbreaks.

County officials said the state health department will announce when the alert will be lifted. The agency said that its investigation is ongoing and that it continues to receive reports of the disease.

A second county water quality notice was also issued, this one covering several other counties in the area.

County officials on Thursday said they will be working with the state health department to determine when that alert will be lifted.
