NEW: Lake Quinsigamond Closed to Swimming

Saturday, July 14, 2012

 

Regatta Point State Beach and Lake Park State Beach are closed for swimming following a sewer spill on Lake Avenue in Worcester.  

The City of Worcester Division of Public Health is recommending that the public not swim, bathe or fish in the area south of the Rt. 9 Bridge to Anna St. on the Worcester side of Lake Quinsigamond until further notice.  

The State Department of Conservation and Recreation has posted the beaches as unsafe for swimming.  

City and State officials will sample and continue to monitor the affected area and notify the public when the advisory has been lifted.

This is the second time in less than a month that the lake's beaches have been closed.  On June 27, the lake was closed to swimming due to unsafe bateria levels.
