Fecal Matters: Swimming Advisory at Potlatch State Park, Mason County

BEACH Program Update

Today, June 28, 2013, Mason County Public Health issued a swimming advisory at Potlatch State Park.  The advisory is issued because of elevated bacteria levels in marine water.

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 Facebook, checking beach status on Coastal Atlas, or joining our listserv.

Christopher Clinton is the interim BEACH Program Manager and is available at 360-407-6154 or for questions.
