Chairman Masci proposed an addition to the draft ofthe Board's letter to the State Department of <br />Ecology regarding the sewage release in the Strait: A third paragraph could state "We (the Board of <br />Health of Jefferson County) recommend that the Department of Ecology reconsider its four-mile <br />discharge limits given that the four-mile point happens to be at the head of Discovery Bay. Because this <br />bay does not flush well, the recommendation is to instead extend that limit to past Cape Flattery, in <br />unprotected waters, so as not to damage the Olympic Coast Sanctuary". <br />
