Take a look at water quality for Penn Cove recreational (sport) harvest of shellfish.

South Shore:

Check out Penn Cove water quality using the Dept. of Health map at the bottom of this page.

 

North Shore:

WDFW- “Shellfish on this beach should only be harvested west of the Rolling Hills Glencairn Community dock. The portion of this beach that lies to the east of the dock is inside a prohibited zone for nearby municipal sewage treatment plant outfalls.”

Sounds like the municipal sewage treatment plant is sending unsafe product into Penn Cove?
