The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends the closure of Easton's Beach in Middletown for swimming due to high bacteria levels. RIDOH also recommends the closure of Kent County YMCA Upper and Lower Ponds in Warwick.
RIDOH will continue to monitor the water quality regularly to assure safe bathing throughout the beach 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.
