Fecal Matters: Fay Bainbridge Park and Indianola Dock are CLOSED to Water Recreation, Kitsap County

BEACH Program Update

On 2/09/2017, Kitsap Public Health District issued a no-contact advisory for Fay Bainbridge Park beach and Indianola Park beach due to a large sewage spill from the West Point Treatment Plant near Discovery Park in Seattle. The public is advised to avoid contact with the water in the affected area until further notice.

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.

Julianne Ruffner, our BEACH Program Manager, is available at 360-407-6154 or for questions.
