Fecal Matters: Cline Spit County Park is OPEN for Swimming, Clallam County

BEACH Program Update

On August 21, 2015, Clallam County Health and Human Services reopened Cline Spit County Park for water contact recreation. Water samples taken August 19 confirmed that bacteria levels are now safe for swimming.

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.
