With all the rain we had this past week, the combined sewer/rain water overflow maxed out the West Point treatment plant and was released untreated into Puget Sound.  The plant is currently operating at 50% capacity and may do so for a couple months.  Obviously, it’s best to avoid water sports like swimming/paddle boarding. Good thing crabbing season is still 6 months away! read these links for more details…

..and they blame boaters for pollution!

    Blame boaters, blame the equipment, blame the capacities of the rain water storage any way you look at the issue it just looks shitty.
