Oakland Beach closed to swimming
On Wednesday, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommended closing Oakland Beach in Warwick for swimming 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 (222-2751) and online.
General beach information includes a list of beach closures and an interactive beach map with closures indicated.
