Unsafe water levels have prompted officials from the US Army Corps of Engineers to temporarily close the swimming beach at Hensley Lake in Madera County.Starting Wednesday, visitors will not have access to the beach and a nearby picnic spot at the Buckridge Recreation Area because of low water levels.

The lake's boat launch and other recreation points will remain open.

The Corps of Engineers says that it will reopen the closed areas when water levels reach high enough for visitors to safety swim again.
