SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Two popular spots where people can get free spring water in an upstate New York park are shut down.

The water flow at the State Seal fountains at Saratoga Spa State Park has been turned off this week. Officials with the state parks office in Albany say the Saratoga park has been experiencing low water pressure at the fountains. The officials say Friday that both fountains have been turned off while workers look into the problem and determine a solution.

Parks officials say they won’t know when the water will resume flowing until they locate the problem.

The two State Seal fountains, located in separate areas of the park, feature a total of six spigots dispensing spring water and one that dispenses mineral water. People often line up to fill plastic jugs for free.
