Beltzville closed to swimming
The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has closed the beach at Beltzville State Park in Carbon County to swimming effective today, because of high bacterial counts in water samples.
The beach will remain closed as a precaution until acceptable water sample results are received. DCNR has posted signs at the beach.
Other activities at Beltzville State Park, such as picnicking, fishing, boating and hiking, are proceeding as usual.
