The Departments of Health and Parks and Recreation will continue to adhere to the existing policy pertaining to the prohibition of recreational swimming at local tidal beaches after certain rainfall events for all beaches. This policy does not include the Island Beaches since they do not appear to be affected by any one factor such as rainfall. Closures of the Island beaches will be announced by the Department of Health when necessary and announced for other locations after trigger rainfall events.

In carrying out Departmental policy, for the protection of the public’s health, the Division of Environmental Services will collect and analyze beach water samples weekly throughout the season.

After rainfall events of one-half inch (0.5″) or greater, Byram Beach will close automatically for one beach day. If multiple storms occur, then the beach will close for one full day after the rain has stopped. Openings, closings and other announcements related to beach activity will be released by the Department through the Division of Environmental Services Beach Hot Line (203-622-7855) and the Town of Greenwich website (www.greenwichct.gov). All swimming closures will be posted at each beach location by the Department of Parks and Recreation.
