Fecal Matters: A no-contact advisory issued for Clallam Bay in Sekiu

BEACH program update

Clallam County Health and Human Services has issued a no-contact advisory for Clallam Bay beaches from Sekiu Point to Slip Point through Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. This closure is due to a combined sewer overflow. 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.

Stay updated on water quality at your beaches by following our Fecal Matters blog posts, connecting on Facebook, or joining our listserv.

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