Excerpt of “All Beaches Closed In Ipswich”


All Ipswich beaches were ordered closed yesterday because of concerns about bacterial contamination.

The towns wastewater treatment plant was discharging higher-than-normal levels of coliform bacteria earlier this week, and the health department closed town beaches and clam beds yesterday afternoon as a precaution.

Ipswich wastewater flows into Greenwood Creek, which feeds into the Ipswich River and eventually the ocean.

The closure affects Crane Beach, as well as the smaller Pavilion, Steep Hill, Little Neck and Clark beaches.
