Most Swimming Areas are Open This Weekend

Mashamoquet is the lone exception out of those that are tested.

All but one of the state's major swimming areas that are tested regularly during the summoner season will be open for the long labor Day weekend, officials from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said on Thursday.

Ironically, the one swimming area not open is at Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Promfret. The northeast corner of the state is popular this weekend because of the Woodstock Fair.

DEEP officials said the reason was "poor water quality."

Attached is the water quality report issued by the DEEP on Thursday.
