Golden Gardens Beach once again safe for swimming

After a 165,000-gallon sewage overflow near Golden Gardens last week, contamination levels have dropped and the water is now safe to enter.

Seattle Public Utilities removed the “closed” signs yesterday (July 1st) afternoon.

SPU says the blockage that triggered the overflow in the North Beach area (just north of Golden Gardens) was caused by tree roots and materials such as wipes — which should never be flushed, even if the packaging says “flushable”.
