Fecal Matters: Lions Park, Bachmann Park and Lent Landing in Bremerton Closed for Swimming

BEACH Program Update

Today, Kitsap County Public Health closed three recreational beaches near Bremerton due to a nearby sewage spill. Lions Park, Bachmann Park and Lent Landing are closed to swimming and water contact until further notice.

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.
