High Water Hurts Some State Parks, Reservoirs

6/18/2010

High water from recent heavy rains is affecting some Indiana state parks and reservoirs.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says beaches at Mississinewa, Salamonie, Roush and Lieber state recreation areas will be closed at least through the weekend because of high water.

The agency said the high water also has closed a ramp at Portland Mills in Parke County and a backpack and canoeing campground at Shades State Park.

The department also said some reservoirs may have debris floating in the water so boaters and skiers should use caution.
