The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Goddard State Park beach in Warwick and Kingston Camp beach in Kingston for swimming, based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits. RIDOH also recommends closing Camp Grosvenor beach in North Kingstown because of high bacteria counts.
RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality regularly to ensure safe bathing throughout the summer season. The status of a beach may change on a daily basis. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
