Fecal Matters: No Contact Advisory for Lent Landing and Lions Field, Bremerton, WA

BEACH Program Update

On August 6, 2013, Kitsap Public Health District issued a no contact advisory for the beaches at Lent Landing and Lions Field near Bremerton, WA. The advisory was issued due to a sewage spill near the two beaches. The advisory will be in place through August 9, 2013

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 for questions.
