City Park and Conimicut Point Beaches Unsuitable for Swimming Due to High Bacteria Counts

PROVIDENCE - The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) has determined that water quality at both City Park Beach and Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick is unsuitable for swimming due to high bacteria counts.

Although neither facility has officially opened for the 2013 bathing season at this time, HEALTH officials have begun monitoring water quality and will continue to do so. Officials will make a recommendation regarding suitability for swimming when the areas are determined to be safe.

PLEASE NOTE: Beach status may change on a daily basis. For up-to-date information about swimming at Rhode Island beaches, call (401) 222-2751 or visit www.health.ri.gov/beaches to use HEALTH's interactive beach map.
