California shuts off beach showers, dooming beachgoers to stay gritty all summer



LOS ANGELES — The outdoor showers at beaches across drought-stricken California will be shut off to save water, so surfers and sunbathers will have to get creative this summer when it comes time to shake off the sand.

Public rinse stations in all state-run beaches and parks will be off limits effective July 15 as the state endures a four-year dry spell. 2015 is the warmest year-to-date in the state’s history, beating last year by more than 1 degree Fahrenheit.

In Los Angeles, the past four years have been the driest on record.
