Connecticut park officials say they’re re-imposing a temporary ban on alcohol this summer at seven state recreational areas that have had problems with drinking, crowds, unruly behavior and property damage. The ban, announced Thursday, will take effect immediately and continue until September 5th. The affected areas include the upper section of Paugussett State Forest and George Waldo State Park in Southbury; Wadsworth Falls State Park in Middletown and Middlefield; and Lake Waramaug State Park in New Preston. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says the temporary ban has proven effective at reducing bad behavior. DEEP says Connecticut’s state parks, forests, and boat launches should be peaceful and family-oriented places where visitors can feel welcome and safe while recreating outdoors.
