The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Third Beach and Peabody's Beach in Middletown, Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick, and Warren Town Beach for swimming. The beaches have been closed because of high bacteria counts.
When a beach closure is recommended, water quality analysis is conducted by RIDOH's laboratory or a state-certified laboratory. The status of a beach may change daily. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
