Beach Closings and Openings

HEALTH officials recommended opening Atlantic Beach Club in Middletown, Bristol Town Beach in Bristol, Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick, Fogland Beach in Tiverton, Grinnell's Beach in Tiverton, and Warren Town Beach in Warren for swimming. This recommendation is based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits. HEALTH will continue to monitor the water quality regularly to assure safe bathing throughout the summer season.

HEALTH officials recommended the closure of City Park Beach in Warwick to swimming due to high bacteria counts. Officials will continue to monitor the water quality and recommend re-opening when the area is safe for swimming. Water quality analysis is conducted by the HEALTH laboratory or a state certified laboratory.
