On 1/10/2021, the Snohomish Health District reopened Brackett’s Landing to the public for water recreation. A closure was issued last week due to heavy rainfall causing above normal flow at the wastewater treatment plant.
Contact with fecal-contaminated waters can result in gastroenteritis, skin rashes, upper respiratory infections, and other illnesses. Children and the elderly may be more vulnerable to waterborne illnesses. We recommend showering after swimming and washing hands before eating if you’ve been in contact with the water or sand.
Stay updated on water quality at local beaches by checking the BEACH Program swimming map, following our Fecal Matters blog posts, connecting on Facebook, or joining our email notification list.
Local Health Departments issue water contact advisories or closures at swimming beaches. The BEACH Program communicates the risk to the public.
