Advisory Against Bathing at 66 Suffolk County Beaches

Copiague Harbor Beach remains closed and advisories have been issued for many other beaches.

Suffolk County, NY - July 16, 2014 - Due to the heavy rainfall, Commissioner James Tomarken, MD, MPH, has issued an advisory against bathing at 66 beaches. This advisory is based on the potential that storm-water runoff may cause the beaches to contain bacteria at levels that exceed New York State standards.
 
The beaches covered by this advisory are located in areas that are heavily influenced by storm-water runoff from the surrounding watersheds and/or adjacent tributaries, and because of their location in enclosed embayments, experience limited tidal flushing. 
 
Dr. Tomarken recommends that bathing and other water contact be suspended in affected areas until the waters have been flushed by two successive tidal cycles (at least a 24 hour period) after the cessation of rainfall.  This advisory will be lifted at 4:00 p.m., Thursday, July 17th, unless beach water samples indicate elevated bacteria levels persisting beyond the 24-hour period.
 
Copiague Harbor Beach, which closed for the first time this season in May, remains closed to bathing due to elevated bacteria levels.
 
For the latest information on affected beaches, residents are advised to call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 852-5822, contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours, or visit the website link.
