FECAL MATTERS: Silverdale Waterfront Park beach CLOSED to swimming, Silverdale, Kitsap Co.

BEACH Program Update

On November 8, 2014, Kitsap County Health District issued a swimming CLOSURE for Silverdale Waterfront Park.  The closure is due to a sewer line break.  The public is to have no 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.

Debby Sargeant is the BEACH Program Manager and is available at 360-480-4868 or for questions.
