Sewage discharge volumes from storm reported

BREMERTON — More than 2 million gallons of sewage mixed with stormwater were discharged into Port Washington Narrows and Sinclair Inlet during Monday’s deluge, according estimates reported to the Kitsap Public Health District. Four separate discharges spilled into Port Washington Narrows and one spilled into Sinclair Inlet, according to a report Tuesday from Bremerton city officials to the health district.

In addition, a little more than 4 million gallons of partially treated sewage was discharged from the West Bremerton Wastewater Treatment Plant into Sinclair Inlet, Whitford said. That sewage received primary treatment and disinfection to kill most pathogens.

West Sound Utility District’s plant near Port Orchard also released 187,000 gallons of sewage that had undergone primary treatment and disinfection.
