Sewage Spill at North Beach Park

Port Townsend, 02/24/14 –– City of Port Townsend officials reported an intermittent leak of treated sewage at North Beach County Park beach. As a result of these spills, Jefferson County Public Health has issued a “No Contact” Health Advisory for all of North Beach and posted warning signs.


The public is advised to avoid any contact with the water at North Beach, including surfing, swimming, boating, fishing and harvesting of shellfish and seaweed. Shellfishing is always closed at North Beach due to the vicinity of the sewage treatment plant outfall. The treated sewage contains low numbers of bacteria, but there remains a risk to human health from water contact.


City officials report that heavy rains are a possible factor in raising the volume of wastewater from the wastewater treatment plant. The leak appears to be from the outfall pipe that is buried under the beach. Repairs will take place when access can occur with low tides, but the health risk remains until the repairs are completed.


For more information on this advisory, contact Jefferson County Public Health’s Water Quality Program at (360) 385-9444.
