The initial advisory came Oct. 4 after heavy rains between Sept. 28 and Oct. 1 sent an estimated 8 million gallons of diluted untreated sewage and stormwater into Port Angeles Harbor through the city’s four combined sewer overflow, or CSO, outfalls.
The Clallam County Environmental Health Division lifted the advisory cautioning against swimming at Hollywood Beach last week, said Andy Brastad, environmental health director at Clallam County Health and Human Services, on Monday.
Two outfalls discharge near the city’s newly completed downtown waterfront esplanade, one sends water into Peabody Creek near where it meets the harbor near City Pier, and the fourth discharges into the harbor near Francis Street Park.
