The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) announced Friday that all state parks will be closed starting Monday, until further notice, due to the approaching storm.
DEEP Commissioner Daniel C. Esty said, “We regret any inconvenience caused by the closing of the parks but our first priority is to protect the safety of the public. Once the storm passes we will assess and address any impacts to our parks and determine when they can be reopened.”
DEEP also announced that:
· Courtesy boat docks and portable toilets located at several state boat launches are being pulled from the water in order to protect them from damage during the storm. A complete list of the docks and toilets being removed can be found at www.ct.gov/deep/boating
· Mt. Misery Campground at Pachaug State Forest, Voluntown, will close at noon Sunday. This is the only state park campground still open for the season.
