No-contact order lifted for Eagle Harbor
The Kitsap Public Health District lifted its no-contact advisory for Eagle Harbor on Tuesday.
People and their pets were warned to not have any contact with the waters of Eagle Harbor on Feb. 19 in response to a 40,000-gallon sewage spill that happened the night before near the intersection of Madison Avenue and Wallace Way.
Health district officials said the city has since completed all necessary repairs and has cleaned up the spill area and storm water system.
Health district officials noted that the agency has an ongoing advisory against harvesting shellfish in Eagle Harbor. Additionally, health officials recommend that people wash their hands or shower after contacting any natural waters in Kitsap County.
For current shellfish closures within Kitsap County, call the hotline number at 1-800-2BE-WELL, or visit www.kitsappublichealth.org.
For closures in other areas of Washington, call the Washington State Department of Health's Shellfish Safety Hot Line at 1-800-562-5632, or visit www.doh.wa.gov.
