Advisory against Bathing at 35 Suffolk County Beaches Due to Heavy Rainfall

Categories: Health Services | Author: gkelly-mcgovern | Posted: 8/8/2018 | Views: 179

Due to the heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services has issued an advisory against bathing at 35 beaches, including beaches within and adjacent to various north shore embayments (Cold Spring Harbor, Huntington Harbor and Bay, Centerport Harbor, Northport Harbor and Bay and along the northern shoreline of the Great South Bay. See list below.

The beaches covered by the advisory are located in areas that are heavily influenced by stormwater runoff from the surrounding watersheds and/or adjacent tributaries, and, because of their location in an enclosed embayment, experience limited tidal flushing. 

The department 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 hr. period) after the rain has ended. If heavy rains persist beyond today or sampling done by the Department finds elevated bacterial numbers persisting beyond the 24-hour period, this advisory will remain in effect.

Additionally, the following beaches remain closed to bathing: Amityville Village Beach, Tanner Park Beach, Sound Beach Property Owners Association West Beach, Corey Beach, Shirley Beach, Benjamins Beach, Bayport Beach, Sayville Marina Park Beach and Lake Ronkonkoma.

For the latest information on affected beaches, 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: www.suffolkcountyny.gov/health.
