RIDOH Recommends Reopening Three Beaches for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends re-opening Fort Adams and King Park Beaches in Newport and Camp Watchaug in Charlestown for swimming because bacteria counts have returned to safe levels.

RIDOH officials will continue to monitor and review beach water quality through Labor Day. 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).
