Fecal Matters: Cline Spit beach re-opens for swimming, Clallam County

BEACH Program Update

Cline Spit beach in Clallam County re-opened today for water recreation.  Water samples of the beach were clean and at levels healthy 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.
