Fecal Matters: No Water Contact Advisory issued for Port Washington Narrows, Kitsap County

BEACH Program Update

On November 18, 2015 Kitsap Public Health District issued a no-contact advisory for the Port Washington Narrows through Friday, November 20th due to a 4,863 gallon combined sewer overflow (CSO).  The CSO discharge occurred due to the heavy wind and rain storm.

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.
