Fecal Matters: Beach Reopens at Lincoln Park in West Seattle

BEACH Program Update

Seattle, WA - The beach at Lincoln Park in West Seattle is now open for water recreation. Beach closure signs were previously posted on March 2, 2013 due to a nearby sewer pump station overflow.

The Seattle-King County Public Health District removed the closure March 5, 2013 after multiple follow-up samples indicated low bacteria levels at the park beach.

Visit the BEACH web site to find the latest results for these and other saltwater beaches: http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/eap/beach/
