Woods Pond Beach Closure
We apologize for any confusion related to our original post. Here is the information available to us:
Late Friday afternoon, the Town of Bridgton received a phone call from the Center for Disease Control. The CDC reports that several people became ill with abdominal issues after swimming in Woods Pond between July 2 and July 6. The town closed the beach immediately.
The town is unable to sample the water and diagnose the cause until the testing facility reopens Monday morning, July 9. We will provide an update as soon as we have more information.
Until then, please do not use Woods Pond and instead visit Highland Lake Beach, Sabatis Island and Salmon Point.
