RIDOH Recommends Re-Opening Watchaug Pond for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends re-opening Camp Watchaug and Burlingame Picnic Area, both on Watchaug Pond in Charlestown, for swimming since bacteria counts there have returned to acceptable levels.

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).
