Update: Discovery Park’s north and south beaches are closed, but all other beaches are now open.
Earlier: Beaches at Golden Gardens, Carkeek Park, Discovery Park and several other Seattle parks are closed until further notice after 3 million gallons of untreated sewage has spilled into the Sound.
The Washington State Department of Ecology says system failures at two water treatment plants in King County sparked the spill.
There’s no word on how long the closures will last. This weekend’s weather is expected to be sunny and in the low 80s.
