Fecal Matters: Blakely Harbor Park Beach on Bainbridge Island is Closed

BEACH Program Update

Yesterday, Kitsap County Public Health closed the beach at Blakely Harbor Park on Bainbridge Island. The closure is due to a nearby sewage spill.

Contact with fecal contaminated waters can result in gastroenteritis, skin rashes, upper respiratory infections and other illnesses. Children and the elderly may be more vulnerable to waterborne illnesses.

Stay updated about water quality at your beaches by keeping up with us on our blog Fecal Matters, on Facebook, or join our listserv. Julie Lowe is the BEACH Program Manager and is available at 360-407-6543 or for questions.
