NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says Brown County State Park and its Abe Martin Lodge have closed to the public over a lack of a usable water supply caused by recent heavy rainfall.

It says the park closed at 4 p.m. Monday and will remain closed to the public Tuesday. Closure decisions are being made day to day.

The park's water source is Ogle Lake inside the park. The DNR significantly larger-than-normal quantities of water coming into the lake have brought soil with it, increasing the water's turbidity. That has led to an insufficient quantity of water to supply park facilities.
