Four Connecticut Swimming Areas Closed

Four Connecticut swimming areas are closed after water tests revealed high bacteria levels or blue-green algae, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

The swimming area at Indian Wells State Park in Shelton is closed because of bacteria levels and the water there will be retested on Aug. 23.

The swimming areas at Silver Sands State Park in Milford and Lake Waramaug State Park in Kent are closed because of bacteria levels. The water at both parks will be retested Monday.

The swimming area at Kettletown State Park in Southbury is closed because of the presence of blue-green algae blooms and it will remain closed until that condition subsides.
