BREMERTON — Sewage spills Thursday in both Bremerton and Kingston have caused local health officials to issue separate health advisories for the two areas. A five-day no-contact advisory was issued by Kitsap Public Health District for the waters of Port Washington Narrows in Bremerton, following an 11,800-gallon sewage overflow at the end of High Avenue.
The Kingston spill resulted from the failure of a pressure device on a 2-inch sewer line near West Kingston Road and Marshall Lane, according to John Gardner of Kitsap County Public Works. Between 5,000 and 10,000 gallons of sewage flowed out for about an hour before a pumper truck began taking up the sewage about 8:30 a.m. The pipe was repaired Thursday afternoon.
