The New Bedford Health Department has announced all of New Bedford’s beaches have been reopened for swimming today.
Earlier this week, as a preventative measure in the wake of nearly two inches of rainfall, the New Bedford Health Department closed several New Bedford beaches to swimming.
The testing results of water samples collected yesterday from all municipal beaches indicate that water quality has returned to a level safe for swimming to resume at all New Bedford beaches. City health officials will continue to monitor the water quality at all municipal beaches for any significant changes.
Additional information is available by calling the New Bedford Health Department at (508) 991-6199.
