RIDOH Recommends Reopening Scarborough State Beach - South for Swimming

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).
