RIDOH Recommends Re-Opening Beaches in Newport, Middletown, and Tiverton

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends re-opening King Park Beach in Newport, Third Beach and Peabody's Beach in Middletown, and Grinnell's Beach in Tiverton since bacteria counts there have returned to acceptable levels. Sandy Point Beach in Portsmouth and Spring Lake Beach in Burrellville remain closed for swimming.

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).
