Fecal Matters: No-contact advisory for North Dyes Inlet, Kitsap County

BEACH Program update

On Dec. 1, Kitsap Public Health District issued a "no-contact" advisory for North Dyes Inlet due to a sewage spill. The no-contact advisory will be in place through Dec. 8. Signs are being posted at public access points including Silverdale Waterfront Park, Anna Smith Park, and Old Mill. 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.
