RAYMOND, Maine (AP) — The town manager in Raymond, Maine, says the local beach on Sebago Lake will be closed for the rest of the summer because too much trash is being left behind.
Don Willard tells the Portland Press Herald that the waste includes hypodermic needles, used condoms, dog feces, and bottles and beer cans.
The beach was closed on July 7 after town officials found elevated levels of E. coli bacteria in the water. It was reopened the next day and since then, water quality tests have been satisfactory.
Raymond selectmen are expected to consider a plan to better manage the beach or close it permanently.
