16,000 gallons of raw sewage force closure of Golden Gardens beach
Seattle Public Utilities is advising the public to avoid water activities at Golden Gardens Beach after a sewer overflow just north of the beach. While the overflow has been stopped, water samples have revealed elevated levels of bacteria.
Water activities at Golden Gardens Beach are prohibited until water samples show acceptable levels for water-contact activities.
Seattle Public Utilities and Seattle/King County Public Health are coordinating to address the closure.
