Sewage release closes waters of Port Ludlow Bay to recreation until Saturday – PDN


With no backup plan in place, the Bay is now closed. Just a heads up for those wanting to kayak or harvest shellfish, which I believe is closed in that bay anyway. Would be great to see a strong rain garden approach in Ludlow to slow the water runoff into the bay.

A sewage spill into Port Ludlow Bay caused by equipment failure at the wastewater treatment plant is not serious or life-threatening, but the area is now closed to recreation until Saturday. Jefferson County Public Health has issued a “no contact” health advisory that will remain in effect until then. The public is advised to avoid any contact with the water in Port Ludlow Bay, including swimming, kayaking, fishing and harvesting of shellfish and seaweed. (Peninsula Daily News)
