Orange County, the city of Laguna Niguel and the county's Flood Control District have been ordered to stop storm drain runoff from polluting Aliso Creek, which empties into the ocean at Laguna Beach.

Water regulators have voted to require pollution permits for coastal fireworks displays in southern Orange County and San Diego County, in what they said was the first such regulation in the nation. Operators of seaside fireworks shows from Laguna Beach to the U.S.-Mexico border will have to pay a $1,500 annual fee, minimize the discharge of pollutants into the water and clean up shells, cardboard, fuses and other debris under the rules approved Wednesday by the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board.

Orange County and Laguna Niguel officials released new data Friday about bacteria counts in Aliso Creek, hoping the improved numbers will allay regional water officials' concerns about the polluted waterway. "It's a lot of new data that they've never had before," said Herb Nakasone, program development manager for the county's flood control district. "The data they had in some cases was over a year old. We hope they see a lot of changes have happened."
