Sandy Point Beach reopens for swimming

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends reopening Sandy Point Beach in Portsmouth for swimming.

The beaches were previously closed because of high bacteria counts.

When a beach closure is recommended, water quality analysis is conducted by RIDOH’s laboratory or a state-certified laboratory.

The status of a beach may change daily. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH’s beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
