Because of runoff from more than 4 inches of rain dumped on Fairfield and the rest of the region Friday and early Saturday by Tropical Storm Andrea, swimming is banned at all of the town's beaches this weekend.

Health officials told the Fairfield Citizen that, because of the potential from bacterial contamination by the runoff, swimming will not be allowed both Saturday and Sunday all five of the beaches on Long Island Sound as well as Lake Mohegan.
