The heavy rain today (Monday, Aug. 15) and yesterday has prompted Fairfield's health officials to close all of the town's beaches for swimming today.
The beaches are closed as a precaution when significant runoff from rainfall poses a potential threat to public health because of the possibility of high bacteria levels in swimming areas.
