Squantz Pond State Park is closed for swimming due to indicator bacteria. The beach areas have been retested, and results are due back to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection this afternoon. Samples are collected weekly in the summer. Last year was the first year that the state conducted testing in the middle of the week rather than the beginning so results are more current when decisions are made about weekend beach closures. It’s not uncommon to close Squantz Pond’s swimming area for high bacteria.
