The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) has closed 29 beaches across Rhode Island so far this summer for a total of 111 days due to high bacteria counts. Locally, Third Beach has been closed since August 10th for this reason. Today on the radio, we chat about beach closures, high bacteria counts, what it all means, what we should be worried about (if anything), and more.
