Swim Beach Closed at Blue Marsh Lake

USACE Philadelphia District
Published July 8, 2024

Swimming at the Dry Brooks Day Use Area of Blue Marsh Lake is currently restricted due to high bacteria levels. Water sample results obtained from testing over the weekend indicated high levels of e-coli bacteria.  The swim beach will remain closed until bacteria levels return to a safe level for public use. This restriction applies to designated swim area.  Picnicking, boating, and other activities are not currently restricted.

Visitors that choose to enter the water for activities in other areas of the lake are reminded that the water is not tested, and that swimming at Blue Marsh Lake is at one’s own risk. Updates will be provided as conditions change.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants you to stay safe.  Don’t become a statistic – and always be prepared for the unexpected! To find a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project near you visit www.CorpsLakes.us.
