Fecal Matters: Windjammer Park Beach CLOSED to Swimming, Island County

BEACH Program Update

On September 4, 2015 Island County Health Department closed Windjammer Park beach to swimming due to high bacteria levels. 

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.
