Swimming area in Cecil County reopens

August 13, 2004

NORTH EAST - State Forest and Park Service officials announced yesterday that the public swimming area at Elk Neck State Park in Cecil County has reopened.

The area was closed last Friday after high concentrations of fecal coliform bacteria were detected in the North East River side of the park.

The state reopened the swimming area after county health department workers retested the water and found that the levels of bacteria had subsided.
