POMFRET,CT (WFSB) -

All, but one of the Connecticut state park beaches are open this weekend for swimming.  

According to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret is closed to swimmers on Friday.  

DEEP said it is testing for the presence of certain indicator bacteria. The bacteria are not disease-causing pathogens, according to DEEP. However, they are one of the tools used to evaluate potential contamination.

DEEP said Mashamoquet Brook State Park would be resampled on  Monday and those results will be available on Tuesday.
