Hop Brook Lake closed temporarily


MIDDLEBURY — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Friday it has temporarily closed the swimming area of Hop Brook Lake until further notice.

The closure is the result of high levels of bacteria in the lake, according to a news release issued by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The lake will be retested and opened if the results are satisfactory, the release said. The remaining areas of the park are open.
