Brown County State Park lodging to remain closed for 11th day

Water testing at Brown County State Park

NASHVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — The lodge, cabins and campground at Brown County State Park will remain closed for an 11th day after flooding caused a problem with the system that cleans the drinking water, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Wednesday afternoon. 

The park was first closed June 17 after sediment increased from flooding and caused problems in the filters of the park’s water treatment facility.

The department said Wednesday that two portable pretreatment units were acquired to filter the water. Water lines across the park on Wednesday were being flushed, and the water quality was being tested.

The park said visitors Thursday can enjoy sightseeing, fishing, picnicking, hiking, horseback riding and visiting the nature center, but no drinking water or modern restrooms are open. 

Admission is free as the treatment facility is being fixed.
