UPDATE: Dept of Ecology reports Richmond Beach closed to swimming

Monday, June 28, 2021

Dept of Ecology Sunday night

UPDATE: Department of Ecology media contacts responded. The beach was posted in error. 

The beach was never closed or posted by Public Health -- there was no risk to public health and the water remains safe.

Original story:

The state Department of Ecology lists Richmond Beach Saltwater Park closed to swimming because of bacterial contamination from sewage spills from the Brightwater Treatment Plant that occurred Friday, June 25, 2021 and Saturday, June 26. Volume unknown.

There are no signs posted and the beach was full of people on Sunday. We will update this story when more information is available.
