Hopkinton has received notice from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), who oversee Hopkinton State Park, that swimming at Hopkinton State park main and upper beaches will be closed until further notice based on BACTERIAL RESULTS OF SAMPLES COLLECTED ON 7/19/2022.  Hopkinton State Park remains open to visitors.

As noted from DCR:
A HEALTH RISK MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH SUBMERSION OR INGESTION OF POLLUTED WATERS. A beach is posted, “No Swimming” as per order of the MADPH and DCR when results equal to or exceed the Single Day Maximum Standard for Enterococci of 104 (marine) and 61 (freshwater) or the 5-test Geometric Mean Standard for Enterococci of 35 (marine) and 33 (freshwater). Postings will remain in force until Enterococci levels of subsequently collected water samples drop below the safe recreational water standards above.
