Schooner Creek Pump Station Overflow
Due to heavy rain, the Schooner Creek Pump Station began on-and-off overflowing this morning, March 15th. The Schooner Creek Pump Station is located at the end of NW 68th Street near the ocean. The station will likely continue to overflow until the persistent and heavy rains subside.
Signs warning of the recent sewage overflows are posted at the affected areas and sampling is being conducted to determine when the water is safe for contact. Contact with water contaminated with bacteria can increase the risk of disease. Please avoid contact with these waterbodies until further notice.
