As temperatures rise, Kitsap Public Health issued a press release to remind residents about some important tips to stay healthy while swimming. There are a number of common sense things people can do to help avoid introducing pathogens into public swimming pools and swimming areas, and to reduce the risk of becoming ill with a waterborne illness.
Don’t swim if you are sick!
• Don’t go into the water if you are sick! People with infectious illness, including vomiting or diarrhea, should not go swimming or to public recreation areas.
• People who have been sick should avoid public recreation areas, swimming beaches and pools for at least 48 hours after they start feeling better and symptoms have stopped.
Use Soap and Water!
• Swimmers should shower thoroughly before entering and after exiting the water.
• Swimmers wash hands and faces thoroughly with soapy water before eating or preparing food.
• Everyone should thoroughly wash their hands with soapy water after using the restroom or changing diapers.
Help Keep the Water Clean
• Children who are not toilet trained should wear swim diapers in the water, and young children should be taken on frequent bathroom breaks while swimming.
• Avoid attracting birds (e.g., by feeding them) to areas where people are swimming. Bird droppings may contribute to the parasites in the water that cause swimmers’ itch and also may carry illness-causing bacteria.
Avoid Swimmers’ Itch
• Use sunscreen - It protects from sun burn and helps prevent swimmer’s itch.
• Swimmers should avoid areas where swimmer's itch is a known problem or where signs have been posted warning of unsafe water.
• Swimmers should never drink lake or pool water and should avoid getting water in their mouths.
• If you see something odd or concerning, call Kitsap Public Health.
• Observe and obey warning signs at swimming areas. They are there for a reason: to keep you healthy and safe!
Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park
Resource Stewardship and Public Access Plan
In 2014, Kitsap County Parks acquired 535 acres of forested uplands and 1.5 miles of shorelands
and tidelands on the northern portion of the Port Gamble Peninsula.
Beginning in February of this year we began a planning process to
address the stewardship of our inherited natural, cultural and
historic resources and evaluate potential recreational use. Our
planning approach included the creation of a Stewardship Steering
Committee, comprised of local citizens, conservation and recreation
interests, recreation business leaders, technical advisors, and
Over the last 5-month period this Committee assessed the qualities
of wetlands, streams, wildlife, wildlife, shellfish populations, the
age and vitality of the forest stands, and address the needs and
desires of a variety of recreationists – both passive and active
Together, we developed Stewardship & Recreation Guiding Principles,
which strive for a reasonable balance of resource protection and
enhancement, intertwined with public access and trail facilities.
The result of our overall stewardship and public use plan is
summarized in the Landscape Classifications & Map, and
recommendations for the agency and volunteers are detailed in the
Management Issues & Objectives report.
