OK to swim again at Fairfield beaches, except Lake Mohegan
Updated 3:47 pm, Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Fairfield's beaches on Long Island Sound re-opened for swimming this morning after the water was declared off-limits Monday because of heavy run-off from the Sunday night storm.
Swimming at Lake Mohegan, however, continues to be banned for a second day as a health precaution.
Town health officials close the public beaches for swimming whenever the level of bacteria in the water exceeds safe guidelines -- a condition likely to exist when heavy runoff from storms drains into swimming areas.
