Fecal Matters: No water contact advisory issued for Port Washington Narrows beaches, Kitsap County

BEACH Program Update

On March 10, 2016 Kitsap Public Health District issued a 3-day, no-contact advisory for Port Washington Narrows beaches including: Evergreen Park, Lions Field, and Lents Landing. The no contact advisories were issued due to combined sewer overflows. The public is advised to avoid contact with the water in these areas.   

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 Facebook, checking beach status on Coastal Atlas, or joining our listserv. Debby Sargeant is the BEACH Program Manager and is available at for questions.
