Lake Mohegan remains closed for swimming today as a health precaution, but the town's coastal beaches on Long Island Sound are open, according to health officials.

All of the town's beaches were closed Tuesday because of runoff from heavy overnight rain in case thre were unhealthy water conditions in the aftermath.

Health officials said at the time that fresh-water Lake Mohegan, where more limited water flow tends to make the potential for bacterial buildup greater, would be closed today as well. If there is no more significant rainfall today, Lake Mohegan beach is expected to reopen Thursday.
