Beltzville Lake reopens for swimming

LEHIGHTON, Pa. - Swimmers heading to Carbon County can get back in the water.

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

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

The beach has had to prohibit swimming several times this summer for the high bacteria, usually associated with goose poop.
