On July 31st 2003 - the Bloedel Donovan Swimming Beach area was closed again, as it had been in 2002, because of high bacterial contamination in the water.

The source of the contamination is not known. We do congratulate the Whatcom County Health Department and the City of Bellingham Public Works Departments for their monitoring of water quality (started just 2-years ago) and the issuance of the closure notice, respecting public health needs.

We still ask - "Why is this area contaminated?"

Beach Closed - 2003/07/31

Sign & Official Notice

Empty Beach - sad thing on a gorgeous summer day, at a major community resource.
