Benjamin Beach in Bay Shore is closed to bathing due to the finding of bacteria in excess of acceptable criteria. The beach will reopen when further testing reveals that the bacteria have subsided to acceptable levels.
According to Dr. James Tomarken, Suffolk County Commissioner of Health, bathing in contaminated water can result in gastrointestinal illness, as well as infections of the eyes, ears, nose and throat.
For the latest information on affected beaches, call the Bathing Beach HOTLINE at 631-852-5822 or contact the Department's Office of Ecology at 852-5760 during normal business hours. http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/HealthServices/EnvironmentalQuality/Ecology/BeachMonitoringProgram.aspx
