Beaches Closed To Swimmers

It’s the hottest day of the year.

But yesterday’s heavy rain brought the usual storm water runoff of bacteria and other contaminants.

The Aspetuck Health District has prohibited swimming at all Westport beaches today.

Temperatures are expected to remain above 90 through Sunday. Stay inside. Stay cool. Stay hydrated!

    Our shore lines are fragile, and the need to add volumes of ground water to the storm sewers to accommodate the proliferation of in-ground swimming pools only exacerbates the commingling of storm and sanitary sewers. Inconceivable that the town engineers continue to deny this as being a problem.

    Are the beaches back open today? I can’t find any info on the parks & rec website
