Is your swimming beach safe?

Ever wonder what the water quality is at your favorite Washington beach? 

The beach at the Fauntleroy-Southworth ferry terminal in Seattle was closed to swimming earlier this month after a sewage overflow. It reopened on June 7th. Visit the BEACH website to find the latest information on beach closures.

The WA Department of Ecology just released the list of beaches they will test this summer. Here is the list. If your beach is missing, contact Julie Lowe, BEACH Program Manager,, Desk: (360) 407-6543
