Fecal Matters: Dyes Inlet CLOSED to Water Recreation, Kitsap County

BEACH Program Update

On 2/09/2017, Kitsap Public Health District issued a no-contact advisory for Dyes Inlet through Thursday, February 16th due to a combined sewer overflow (CSO) that discharged into the inlet. This advisory includes Silverdale Waterfront Park. The public is advised to avoid contact with the water in the affected area.

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.
