Fecal Matters: No-contact advisory lifted for Appletree Cove, Kitsap County

BEACH Program Update

Good News! Kitsap Public Health District has lifted the no-contact advisory for Appletree Cove that was issued following a sewage spill near West Kingston Road. A follow-up investigation by Kitsap County Public Works determined all the sewage was contained on shore and no sewage reached the marine water.  

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.
