RIDOH Recommends Reopening Marion Irons Beach, Camp Ruggles Beach, and Camp Grosvenor Beach for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Marion Irons and Camp Ruggles beaches in Chepachet and Camp Grosvenor Beach in North Kingstown for swimming because bacteria counts have returned to safe levels.

RIDOH 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). A list of closed beaches can also be accessed at
