RIDOH Recommends Closing YMCA Ponds in Warwick

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Kent County YMCA Lower and Upper Ponds in Warwick for swimming because of high bacteria levels.

RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality regularly to ensure safe bathing throughout the summer. 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).
