Water advisory issued for Bainbridge Island’s Eagle Harbor

Kitsap Public Health District has issued an advisory to avoid human and pet contact with Eagle Harbor waters off Bainbridge Island because of a sewage spill reported Thursday evening.

Sewage flow to the beach was stopped around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Bainbridge Island Public Works, but the amount spilled into Eagle Harbor is unknown.

The flow came from a break in a pipeline located on the beach, which crews will not be able to repair until tides are low enough to access the pipe

Shellfish harvesting is not advised, public works says.
