Fecal Matters: The Swimming Beach Near the Fauntleroy-Southworth Ferry Terminal in Seattle is Open!

BEACH Program Update

The beach area near the Fauntleroy-Southworth ferry terminal in Seattle is now open for swimming. The Seattle-King County Public Health District opened the beach on June 7, 2012 after sample results indicate low levels of bacteria. The beach was previously closed on June 3, 2012 because of a sewage overflow at a nearby outfall.
