NEW FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

Officials said Squantz Pond State Park in New Fairfield was reopened for swimming Saturday.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said it was reopened after the swim area was closed earlier this week.

The water tested positive for high bacteria levels as a result of storm water runoff from heavy rains.

The results of testing showed bacteria levels had receded to safe levels.

All state park swim areas are currently open.
