LEHIGHTON, Pa. -

Swimmers heading to Carbon County got good news on Friday.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PCNR) has reopened the beach at Beltzville State Park near Lehighton.

The lake had closed for swimming activities earlier in the week due to high bacteria levels.

Officials have had to close the lake to swimmers several times this summer because of high bacteria, often blamed on excessive geese poop.
