Brown County State Park, lodge stay closed through Thursday

June 18, 2019 GMT

NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says Brown County State Park and its Abe Martin Lodge will remain closed to the public through Thursday because of a lack of a potable water supply caused by recent heavy rainfall.

The DNR said Tuesday there’s still too much sediment from last weekend’s heavy rainfall coming into its water system to allow the production of potable water. The park’s water source is Ogle Lake inside the park.

It says with additional heavy rainfall predicted, closure beyond Thursday remains a day-by-day decision.

The park first closed at 4 p.m. Monday .
