NEW: Beaches Open on Lake Quinsigamond; Still Unsafe to Swim

Monday, July 16, 2012

 

Lake Quinsigamond

The beaches at both Regatta Point and Lake Park Beach on Lake Quinsigamond are now open, but the Worcester Division of Public Health warns it is still not safe to swim.

A water quality sampling performed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation showed that water quality levels at the two beaches are normal.

However, the City of Worcester's Department of Inspectional Services water samples from the affected areas continue to suggest that bacteria levels are still a concern. The impacted area is designated as the water south of the Route 9 Bridge to Anna Street on the Worcester side of Lake Quinsigamond.

Officials are advising the public not to swim, bathe or fish in the area.
