Fecal Matters: Salt Creek Recreation Area is open for water recreation, Clallam County

BEACH Program Update

Good News! Clallam County Health and Human Services has lifted the no-contact advisory at Salt Creek Recreation Area beach. Analysis of water samples collected yesterday found bacteria levels were low and safe for water contact.

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 julianne.ruffner@ecy.wa.gov for questions.
