Beltzville Lake Beach closed, again, due to high bacteria levels

LEHIGHTON, Pa. - Beltzville Lake Beach is, again, closed following bacteria tests of the water.

The beach has been closed a number of times this summer due to high bacteria levels.  The closure is often blamed on excessive geese feces.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) closed the beach to swimmers Wednesday.  Water sampling tests were done Monday.

Beltzville State Park is located in Lehighton, Carbon County and offers swimming, picnic areas, fishing and hiking trails.
