(WFSB) - A new water quality report on Thursday showed all state park swimming areas are open, except one.
This comes one day after the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection on Wednesday listed three swimming areas had been closed after bacteria was detected.
They were identified as Gay City State Park in Hebron, Lake Waramaug State Park in Kent, and Pachaug State Forest in Voluntown.
Retesting was done on Thursday, which cleared them all to reopen.
DEEP noted that indicator bacteria are not disease-causing pathogens. They are one of the tools it uses to evaluate the potential for contamination.
The fourth swimming area, at Mashamoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret, is closed for maintenance.
DEEP said all of the other features of the state parks are open for business.
