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.
