Washington Department of Ecology issued the following announcement on Jan. 24.
BEACH program update
Kitsap Public Health District issued a no-contact health advisory for Port Washington Narrows and Sinclair Inlet in effect through January 29th. This is due to an approximately 82,400 gallon sewage spill from Bremerton Public Works. Signs have been posted at public access points and the public is advised to avoid contact with the water in those areas.
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.
Julianne Ruffner, our BEACH Program Manager, is available at 360-407-6154 or email@example.com for questions.
