All Gloucester Beaches Are Officially Open


AUGUST 27, 2010
2:00 PM

Based on preliminary results of samples taken at all of Gloucester’s public beaches on August 26, 2010, the Gloucester Health Department is lifting the swimming ban related to the elevated enterococci levels from samples taken August 25, 2010. Current enterococci levels are well below the limits set by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s bathing beach standards.

The following beaches have been re-opened to public swimming:

• Plum Cove Beach
• Wingaersheek Beach
• Good Harbor Beach
• Cressy’s Beach
• Pavilion Beach
• Half Moon Beach
• Niles Beach

The Department will return to its regular sampling schedules. For more information and updates, please visit the city website at
