RIDOH Recommends Closing Camp Watchaug and Briar Point Beach for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends the closure of Camp Watchaug in Charlestown and Briar Point Beach in Coventry for swimming because of high bacteria counts.

RIDOH will continue to monitor the water quality regularly to assure safe bathing throughout the summer season. The status of a beach may change as new data become available. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751) and at www.health.ri.gov.
