Pico beach and Donovans beach are currently closed due to high test results.
All other beaches are open.
The Town of Winthrop conducts weekly tests of the water quality of 5 beaches in Winthrop for levels of Enterococci which is an indicator of fecal pollution and possible enteric pathogens. When the level exceeds 104 MPN (most probable number)/100 mL, the Town of Winthrop closes the beach. High levels are usually due to heavy rainfall and usually return to normal levels after a retest.
Please take precaution and temporarily refrain from swimming in closed beaches until levels return to safe conditions. Thank you for your cooperation.
