Beach Openings

HEALTH officials recommended re-opening Grinnell's Beach in Tiverton, King Park Beach in Newport, and Third Beah in Middletown, 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. Water quality analysis is conducted by the HEALTH laboratory or a state certified laboratory.

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.
