BENTON, COLUMBIA COUNTY (WBRE 28/WYOU 22 EYEWITNESS NEWS) — Lake Jean at Ricketts Glen State Park has been temporarily closed due to unacceptable levels of bacteria, according to park officials.

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources said Wednesday that water test results came back with “unacceptable levels of bacteria” and the lake is now closed.

Park officials also reminded visitors that picnic areas and sandy areas of the beach remain open for use.

They are hopeful they can update the status of the water in the coming days.
