If You See a Baby Ruth Floating Around at the Auburn Outlet Beach, Don’t Eat It

Lake Grove Park

City Manager Clinton Deschene said the water in the outlet has failed quality tests eight of the last 13 times it was tested. According to a City Council decision in May, swimming won’t be allowed at the beach until it passes those tests consistently. “But the park will be open,” Deschene said. “It’s open for public access and recreation, but there will be no swimming.” Called Lake Grove Park, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, through Sept. 3. The park has picnic tables, gazebos, playground equipment and grills. A summer renovation project calls for building two beach volleyball courts. The park and beach were open for swimming last summer, but swimming was shut down twice after Coliform bacteria was found in the water. (read more at the Bangor Daily News)
