Fecal Matters: Evergreen Park, Lions Field, and Lents Landing in Bremerton, WA are Closed

BEACH Program Update

On September 6, 2013, the Kitsap Public Health District issued a seven day no contact advisory for Evergreen Park, Lions Field, and Lents Landing. The advisory was issued due to heavy rains. The public is advised to avoid contact with the water until further notice.

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 our blog Fecal Matters, on Facebook, or join our listserv.

Julie Lowe is the BEACH Program Manager and is available at 360-407-6543 or for questions.
