Swimming area in Dorchester Park back open after week-long closure

WHITNEY POINT (WBNG) — The swimming area at Dorchester Park is back open after being closed for a week due to algae bloom in the water.

Dorchester Park posted on its Facebook page that the beach is back open Saturday morning.

According to Broome County Parks, the algae bloom went away.

The Broome County Department of Health tested the water this week once the algae bloom cleared and has determined the water to be safe to swim in.
