Walden Pond State Reservation announced today it'd be best to stay out of the water at the historic pond for the time being:
A Red Flag warning has been posted at Walden Pond and swimming is discouraged in this area until further notice. For more information regarding water quality at DCR beaches, please call the DCR beaches Hotline at (617) 626-4972.
The reservation didn't specify the reason for the warning, but past red-flag warnings have gone up there are the detection of bacteria that could make swimmers sick, which often happens after runoff from heavy rains, such as the ones we've had over the past few days.
