RIDOH Recommends Closing Lincoln Woods Beach for Swimming; Reopening Surfer’s Rock Beach

 

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Lincoln Woods State Park Beach in Lincoln for swimming because of high bacteria levels. RIDOH recommends reopening the Surfer’s Rock end of Sachuest Beach (also known as Second Beach) in Middletown for swimming because bacteria counts have returned to safe 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). A list of closed beaches can also be accessed at health.ri.gov.
