A no-contact advisory has been adopted for the southern shoreline of Bainbridge Island following a sewage spill Saturday.

Officials with Kitsap County Sewer District No. 7 said a spill on South Beach Drive resulted in 2,100 gallons of sewage escaping.

The Kitsap Public Health District said the no-contact advisory will run from Feb. 3 through Feb. 10.

During a no-contact advisory, the public is advised to avoid contact with the water in the affected area. This includes swimming, wading, or types of water recreation or play where water could be swallowed or get in the mouth, nose or eyes.

People should also avoid direct skin contact if possible, and immediately wash with soap and water if they have exposure to the water, officials said.

Authorities also said signs have been posted in the immediate spill area and at public access points around the southern shoreline of Bainbridge Island.
