***Water Quality***

While both Marion Irons and Spring Grove beach areas have passed all water quality test this summer, Cyanobacteria, commonly known as blue-green algae, has been found in neighboring communities.

Glocester beach fronts will continued to be monitored, but please be aware of the following information provided from RI DEM:

Blooms of cyanobacteria generally occur in late summer into the early fall when water temperatures are warmest and an abundance of sunlight and nutrients are available. There are no visual properties of a cyanobacteria bloom that indicate the algae are producing toxins. Cyanobacteria blooms generally have the following properties:

  • Blooms are generally bright green or blue-green in color, but may be brown, red or purple.
  • Water may look like thick pea soup and foam may create shoreline scums.
  • The water can also look cloudy with a green tint.
  • A slick film or colored streaks may cover the surface of the water like spilled paint.
  • The color of the bloom may give clues to the type of algae, but confirmation of cyanobacteria can only be completed by a microscope.

For additional information, please feel free to call the Recreation Department at 401.568.6206.

NOTICE: The Recreation Department is looking to see if there is any interest in starting a Women's Basketball Program. If any post high school aged residents are interested in directing and/or playing, please call the Recreation Office at 401-568-6206, x 224.

Vandalism, we're sorry to say, is a problem at all our recreation areas. If you notice any act of vandalism, please either speak to the culprits or report them to the Glocester Police or Recreation Office at 568-6206, ext. 224. Thanks!

Our youth leagues are always in need of coaches, officials, concession workers, and other caring adult workers.
