500-gallon sewage spill prompts no-contact advisory for Chico Creek, Chico Bay

Advisory to be in effect through March 11

A spill of some 500 gallons of sewage prompted a no-contact advisory for Chico Creek and the western half of Chico Bay Thursday, according to the Kitsap Public Health District

The no-contact advisory will be in effect through March 11. During this time, the public is advised to avoid contact with the water in the affected area and the Kitsap Public Health District recommends against swimming, wading or any types of water recreation that could cause water to be swallowed or get into the mouth, nose or eyes.

“People should also avoid direct skin contact if possible, and immediately wash with soap and clean water if they have exposure to the water,” the KPHD press release states.
