Peabody’s Beach in Middletown closed for high bacteria counts


The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Peabody’s Beach in Middletown for swimming because of high bacteria counts. RIDOH also recommends reopening Oakland Beach in Warwick and Echo Lake Campground in Glocester, based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits. Camp Watmough’s Beach in Glocester, and Briar Point Beach in Coventry remain closed for swimming.
RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality regularly to ensure safe bathing throughout the summer season.
The status of a beach may change on a daily basis. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH’s beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
