Chickasaw Natl Recreation Swim Holes Back Open

Posted:

Swimming areas at Chickasaw National Recreation are now back open. KTEN reported earlier in the week some of the swimming holes were closed due to a possible sewage line break that contaminated the water. 

Park officials say testing of the water of Travertine Creek has confirmed there is no contamination. Due to recent high bacteria counts, Panther Falls and Black Sulphur will be open but remain posted with a caution notice.

The park will continue to monitor the bathing beach areas along Travertine Creek.
