Swimming Area Closed at Blue Marsh Lake

USACE Philadelphia District
Published June 28, 2024

Swimming at the Dry Brooks Day Use Area of Blue Marsh Lake is currently restricted due to high bacteria levels.

Water tests will be done daily until the levels return to a safe level for public use. This only affects the water area, picnicking and boating will not be restricted at the lake.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would also like to remind those visitors that choose to enter the water at other areas of the lake, that the water in those areas is not tested and that swimming at Blue Marsh Lake is “swim at your 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.
