The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Scarborough State Beach - South in Narragansett for swimming because bacteria counts reported by the RIDOH State Health Laboratories have returned to safe levels. (No advisory was issued for Scarborough State Beach – North.)
RIDOH's monitoring for beach water quality is now complete for summer 2022. The status of a beach may change as data from private laboratories become available. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
