Westport Beaches Reopen to Swimmers

WESTPORT, Conn. – No longer do you have to go to Compo Beach and only look at the water. As of Wednesday afternoon, the town's beaches have reopened to swimming.

After Hurricane Irene on Sunday, the Westport Weston Health District closed the waters to swimming. This was done as a precaution against high bacteria levels that are often a result of heavy rains.

Lifeguards will be on hand at Compo Beach every day through Labor Day. However, lifeguard services may be reduced based on the availability of staff. There will be no lifeguards at Burying Hill Beach on the weekdays through Labor Day, but lifeguards will be on duty on the weekend.

"All patrons and particularly those with small children should swim where lifeguards are present," Parks and Recreation Department Operations Supervisor Dan DeVito said in a statement.

Will you go swimming now that the waters have reopened?
