No surprise there with all the minorities coming in from the cities where apparently defecating in public waters is the norm. Happens every memorial day, labor day and 4th of July.

Hey "no surprise" I like you!

They really need to close Beltzville and every other recreational area in Carbon County to all minorities!

Oh wait a second, I think as caucasians we are now the minority or at least it seems that way!

In any case I think its time to shut down all roads leading here before its too late!

If I'm correct in assuming that it is a pond or lake type swimming area, not a man made pool, this type of thing occurs when an animal, like a deer dies in the water. I've seen it and it takes a lot of chemicals to clear it up.

I thought you had to pay at MCL and they didn't accept the access card there, so if anybody is going to be screwed its the freeloaders, that get to ruin the lake for free at Beltville. When did they move Beltsville to Liegh County or are we looking at some more great reporting from the Morning Call?
