KILLINGSWORTH, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut state park has reopened after tests showed the water there is safe following an alleged email threat that it would be poisoned.
Connecticut environmental officials said Wednesday afternoon that Chatfield Hollow State Park, including the swimming area, have been reopened to visitors.
A 55-year-old Madison man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly sending an email threat to poison the waters at the park near Killingworth.
A spokesman said several employees of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection got threatening emails, including the one containing the poison threat.
Wayde Isakson was arrested at the park and charged with threatening, breach of peace and making terroristic threats. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to appear Sept. 10 in Middletown Superior Court.
