To inform the public when data and observations from approved volunteer partners and RIDOH’s own water samples from non-licensed beaches indicate that risks to public health are present at beaches and other coastal swimming areas in Rhode Island.
Save the Bay collects weekly water quality samples at several upper Narragansett Bay sites that are analyzed at the State Health Laboratory. The test results are reported directly to the RIDOH Beach Monitoring Program.
Reporting water quality risk information from volunteer partners’ monitoring programs is consistent with RIDOH’s Beach Monitoring Program. If you have any questions about an item listed below, use the contact information associated with the information or go to the volunteer partner’s website.
