No Contact Advisory Lifted for Eagle Harbor

The Health District has lifted its no contact advisory for Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island. The advisory was issued on February 19, 2014, in response to a 40,000 gallon sewage spill that happened the night before near the intersection of Madison Avenue and Wallace Way. The City of Bainbridge has since completed all necessary repairs and has cleaned up the spill area and storm water system.

The Health District has an ongoing advisory against harvesting shellfish in Eagle Harbor.  Additionally, we recommend that people wash their hands or shower after contacting any natural waters in Kitsap County.

For current shellfish closures within Kitsap County, call 1-800-2BE-WELL, or visit us online at For closures in other areas of Washington, call the Washington State Department of Health's Shellfish Safety Hot Line at 1-800-562-5632, or visit them online at
