MANCHESTER – Manchester Township Recreation announced Thursday morning that the low side of Harry Wright Lake is closed for swimming Thursday.

The high side of the lake is open for swimming to the general public after 3 p.m. weekdays and all weekend long.

The low side was closed due to high amounts of Escherichia coli.

Bathers should check in with the recreation department or Ocean County Health Department Friday to find out if the low side of the lake is reopened for swimming.
