BEACH Program Update
Mason County - Potlatch State Park near Hoodsport, WA is open for swimming. Beach caution signs were previously posted on August 2, 2013 due to a nearby failing septic system that has since been repaired. Follow-up sampling indicated levels of bacteria that meet water quality standards for swimming.
Although the beach closure for swimming has been lifted, the shellfish harvesting closure remains in place until August 29, 2013.
