Fecal Matters: Potlatch State Park in Mason County is Open for Swimming.

BEACH Program Update

Skokomish, WA - Potlatch State Park is open for water recreation. Beach caution signs were previously posted on June 28, 2013 due to high fecal bacteria in the water.

Mason County Public Health removed the swimming advisory July 3, 2013, after follow-up sampling indicated low bacteria levels. There is no longer a public health concern.
