Natick Recreation & Parks has announced the following:
Memorial Beach will remain closed today (Wednesday August 5th) due to a high bacteria count detected in this week’s water testing. To minimize the risk of illness from contaminated water, beaches are required to be tested for “indicator” bacteria. Memorial Beach is tested for Enterococci or E. coli each week and this week we had an exceedance. Memorial Beach will remain closed until a re-sample tests clear.
Not far away, Farm Pond in Sherborn was closed mid-week due to a high level of E. coli.
