The state’s Department of Conservation and Recreation announced Friday that the water at the main beach at Hopkinton State Park has tested below the acceptable limit for bacteria, meaning it has reopened for swimming. The upper beach reopened a few days earlier.
Both beaches were closed in late July after testing above the acceptable limit for enterococci.
The water continues to be tested daily.
The town-run Sandy Beach (on Lake Maspenock) has remained open throughout the summer.
