Health officials lift advisory for Lacamas Lake, surrounding creeks

Sewage spill occurred on Feb. 26

Clark County Public Health officials have completely lifted an advisory warning people and their pets to avoid contact with water in Lacamas Lake, Lacamas Creek and Dwyer Creek. Sampling by the city of Camas indicates the water no longer poses a health threat.

On Feb. 26, Public Health issued an advisory to avoid water contact in and around Lacamas Lake following a sewage spill in the 4700 block of Northwest Pacific Rim Boulevard. On March 4, that advisory was lifted for Lacamas Lake and Dwyer Creek, but remained in place for a mile-long stretch of Lacamas Creek until March 10.
