As the weather warms and people keep their distance from one another to halt the spread of the coronavirus, more people are turning to the walking trail at Lake Scranton, Pennsylvania American Water spokeswoman Susan Turcmanovich said.
They’re leaving behind the trash to prove it.
In addition to taking their trash with them, people should follow posted guidelines when using the 3 ½-mile trail, water utility officials said Wednesday.
Pets are not allowed, nor are bicycles or skates. Walkers and runners should stay on the path and not veer into the woods. People should not touch the water and should not feed the wildlife.
Lake Scranton is a water source for nearly 130,000 people. The trail is open from dawn to dusk.
