The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Slack's Pond Beach in Smithfield and Ginny-B Campground in Foster for swimming because of high bacteria 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).
