Thursday, July 29, 2021: Sandy well water at Eagle Island State Park has forced the shutdown of restrooms, drinking fountains and the water slide. While the park remains open, visitors are urged to bring their own drinking water. Portable restrooms have been installed.
Park officials said the shutdown protects the facility’s plumbing and slide machinery, which could be ruined by sand. A consultant has been brought in to examine the water supply well and to suggest potential remedies. There is currently no estimate as to when the water service will be restored.
Sand appeared in the water earlier this month and the problem has grown worse in recent days.
