I just received a notification that Corcoran Pond is closed to swimmers. Read the message, below.
The Town of Waterville Valley has issued a health advisory for Corcoran Pond Beach. Corcoran Pond Beach tested higher than the state criteria for fecal bacteria.
To protect the public from possible illness while swimming, the NH Beach Program monitors water for fecal bacteria and cyanobacteria from nearly 200 beaches each summer. Bacterial results higher than the state criteria indicate contact with the water could put swimmers at risk of getting sick from harmful microscopic organisms in the water. When fecal bacteria levels are high, NHDES issues an advisory and immediately resamples the beach. Once the bacteria levels no longer exceed the state criteria, the advisory is removed.
Advisories DO NOT close a beach. Boat rentals will remain open.
For more information, you may visit the NH DES Website beach monitoring program.
