Brackett’s Landing in Edmonds Closed to Swimming and Diving

Closure is a precautionary measure

EDMONDS, WA – Due to heavy rainfall causing above normal flow at the wastewater treatment plant, the Snohomish Health District has restricted recreational water activities in the Brackett’s Landing beach areas until further notice out of an abundance of caution.

The Snohomish Health District has posted closure notices for both Brackett’s Landing North and South, including the Edmonds Underwater Park, effective immediately. Marina Beach and the off-leash dog park further south are not impacted. 

“Since Brackett’s Landing is a conservation area, pets should not be in those waters and recreational shellfish harvesting is already restricted. Until further notice, divers and swimmers should avoid this area,” said Jeff Hutchison, the Safe Environments Supervisor for the Snohomish Health District. “We appreciate the City of Edmonds’ quick action and partnership with us and Ecology.”

The Snohomish Health District works closely with Washington State Department of Ecology’s Beach Environmental Assessment, Communication & Health (BEACH) program. Brackett’s Landing has been marked as “closed” on their BEACH program website. Visit the Snohomish Health District’s website to learn more about how it works to protect the water quality of Snohomish County’s lakes, rivers and the Puget Sound waterfront.
