Hello All – I received at call from Dept. of Health today regarding the situation at Branbury beach.
NOTE: August 21, 2015.
The beach at Branbury State Park is currently closed.
Although a Wednesday swim water sample reported an extremely low ecoli reading (6) the beach has been closed as a prudent precaution after the Vermont Department of Health received several reports of sickness by recent Branbury park visitors.
Park staff are disinfecting all surfaces in the park and are working with the Health Department.
Park drinking water was retested and came back once again with no detection of bacteria.
Additional swim water test results will be available Saturday morning.
We will update this web page as we learn more. Best Regards,
